Robert Rodriguez and John Malkovich have made a movie that no one currently alive will ever see—and that’s just fine by them.
According to IO9, the movie was made in collaboration with Louis XIII , the producer of the luxury Ramy Martin Cognac, that is aged 100 years. While the full details will remain a mystery until 2115, it has been revealed that the film is set in present and, according to Rodriguez, will be “emotionally charged.”
Malkovich did provide a few details about these teasers. “There were several options when the project was first presented of what [the future] would be,” he said. “An incredibly high tech, beyond computerized version of the world, a post-Chernoybl, back to nature, semi-collapsed civilization, and then there was a retro future which was how the future was imagined in science fiction of the 1940s or ’50s.”
Ludovic du Plessis, the brand’s global executive director, noted at a press conference with Rodriguez and Malkovich on Wednesday that it takes a century for each bottle of Louis XIII to age. So, why not do the same with a film?
“Our cellar master is crafting Louis XIII today that will be ready in 2115,” he noted. “He will never see his baby. He is working on something for people who haven’t been born yet. This is impressive, and this is our source of inspiration. This was the creative source of inspiration for the movie 100 Years.”
Similarly, the cast and crew of 100 Years will never see the final cut of the film, not even Rodriguez, who sent his rough edit out for visual effects to be added and never saw the final cut before it went in the vault…Via Adweek.
