Back in November 2015, it was announced that actor John Malkovich and director Robert Rodriguez were making a film that wouldn’t be released for a century. Indeed, 100 Years: The Movie You Will Never See is set to hit cinemas on November 18, 2115!
Until then, the movie will be kept in a safe, which will be on display at the Cannes Film Festival this month. According to a press release on Entertainment Weekly, the project is being “held in a special safe that will open automatically in 100 years when the timing is complete”. Just to clarify, it’s the safe that’s on display, not the movie inside.
In the behind-the-scenes trailer for the film, Malkovich says: “Part of the notion inherent in this is for us to try to imagine what the world will be like in 100 years”. Rodriguez then adds: “I wanted [the film] to be a work of art that is enjoyed in 100 years”.
Meanwhile, Thierry Frémaux (general delegate of Cannes Film Festival) said: “I hope that our descendants will consider the movie 100 Years for the Palme d’Or at Cannes Film Festival in 2116”.
The film is set to promote the luxurious Louis XIII Cognac, a drink which takes 100 years to craft.
