John Malkovich Makes Film to be Seen in 2115

By Gary Cutlack on at

John Malkovich and director Robert Rodriguez have worked together on a miniature film, only it's unlikely any of us will see the results as it's being locked away for 100 years.

Not because it's really awful or features illegal things that'd see them both locked up were it to come out while they were alive, but because... it's an advert. Sigh. It's a promotional thing paid for by the maker of the Louis XIII Cognac brand of alcohol, a premium drink that - LIKE THE FILM -- is left to mature for 100 years before drinking.

So that's why 100 Years won't be seen until 2115. And it should be seen by some, at least, as the Louis XIII people are sending out invites to 1,000 important people, suggesting they leave the tickets to their children. They'll love that.

This is not the film, but a mini feature covering its creation. Malkovich says we can expect to see it set in one of three broad representations of the world of the future, explaining the choices as: "An incredibly high tech, beyond computerized version of the world, a post-Chernobyl, 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."

So one of those. But we'll all be dead so it doesn't really matter. [io9]
