Fisk is an awesome dude, has worked a lot w Terrence Malick and David Lynch (also former bro-in-laws) and is also married to Sissy Spacek. Didn't realize he was still active at 74 but that's awesome
He's the man in the planet in Eraserhead!
Wow talk about a stellar resumé
He's also been married to Sissy Spacek since the 1970s
Oscar #2 comin’ up
It's pretty hard to believe that Scorsese only has one Oscar under his belt
This movie is going to be fantastic. The book was such a wild ride...unfortunately.
Wait so should I read the book?
Sweet. The production design of Mulholland Drive one of my favorite aspects of that film. Especially the Aunt's house and Kesher's house.
Fisk is legit the best production designer around. Will be a sad day for film when he passes. No one has such specificity for period details.
Let's not forget Phantom Of the Paradise.
Fisk is a brilliant production designer and this is definitely big news. I personally haven't seen as many people in my film-related circles talk about a production designer joining a movie as they have been with this announcement.
So, when will this movie come out? I’m just trying to figure out how much time I have to procrastinate reading the book.
Most likely in Late 2022 so it can take advantage of the awards season
Let’s go!! Awesome get and one day closer to filming !
Three of my favorite movies right there!
I just read the book this is going to be based off. It's an amazingly tragic piece of American history.
So what you are saying is we should definitely watch this movie.
It's Scorsese. You better watch this movie.
Fisk is the shit. Your cinematography is only as good as your production design
And they've got Rodrigo Prieto on cinematography so I trust it'll look great.
Amazing book about a very ugly chapter in American history.
The book was great. This movie is gonna be sweet. So many big names
I watched some videos about Jack Fisk and his work with Terrence Malick. They talked about how Jack Fisk would go the extra mile to put stuff in the drawers, even if it was never shown, just to get the atmosphere right. That’s attention to detail
The budget for this film is insane but I am sooo happy that Apple agreed to pay it.
Oh man now I’m excited
This film is gonna be great.
Ooo a twin peaks connection
That’s quite the resume
The greatest guitarist of all time (IMO), Jonny Greenwood, did the score for There Will Be Blood.
[discordant violins intensify]
When do they start filming?
In a few weeks, they'll be filming until November.
Fun fact: this movie has open calls for extras and I sent in my headshots over two months ago. Still haven't gotten a callback 😎
i heard they were only looking for ugly extras anyway, thats probably why they didnt hit you back <3
I wish it was all these people involved but instead of Killers it was Devil in the White City like they promised so long ago. Such a great book the way it intercut between the fair and H H Holmes, and there’s never been a good documentary on Holmes even (there’s one on Hulu that has so much information wrong and has horrible re-enactments). But of course I’m sure they would have made it work if they could have. Hopefully eventually it’s made into a good miniseries or something.
Having read both, I think this will make the better movie. Devil in the White City is just too large and disconnected to work as a film, it'll be a better miniseries.
Ah heck ya, I love Mulholland drive! (I just love David lynch lol)
Damn that's a incredible resume.
Hope it’ll be better than that train wreck ‘the Irishman’
Nothing against that movie but jeez, those guys are too old to act like that.
If Scorsese released that movie during the 90s, he would become the master of the mobster genre. The Irishman was liking the animated skeleton. One thinks its dead but somehow its moving.
Remember when the movie was slated for a release this year.
yeah, but i think there was there was some pandemic type thing that happened, i forget
I think this movie has a chance to be really really good. Like his best since Departed.
Almost every movie he's made since Scorsese has been one upping himself. Since the Departed he's made Shutter Island, Hugo, Wolf of Wall Street, Silence, and Irishman. That's 3 Best Picture nominees, and at least one of those is probably on most people's best of the 2010's lists.
People will care more about Leo fart face than they will the life of the victims.
