Great news: Lynee Ramsay has a new movie coming out. It’s been since 2002 that she had a film in theaters with Morvern Callar. That’s too long for the woman who made that and Ratcatcher.
Even better news: Johnny Greenwood is scoring it. You know Johnny from Radiohead, but you also know him from his amazing score for There Will Be Blood. He also scored the upcoming adaptation of the novel Norwegian Wood.
The new Ramsay film is We Need To Talk About Kevin, based on a book by Lionel Shriver ‘which tells the story of a smart, educated New York mother who does her best to raise a son she never wanted. He turns out to be extremely difficult and is at the center of the woman’s marital breakdown before going on a killing spree at his high school with a crossbow. ’
Definitely sounds like he needed to be talked about.
Tilda Swinton and John C Reilly star. The film is at the European Film Market in Berlin looking for foreign buyers. The movie is in post; there’s no word on US distro.
