Peter Farrelly’s next film will be another bromance, this time set against the backdrop of “the greatest beer run ever”

Jay Roach started it.

I think Griffith can lay claim to it even earlier.

I think Méliès did even earlier than that

Not exactly "in production" - far from it, actually - but David Lynch wants Laura Dern to shave her head for a part in an upcoming project.

HBO procures George Clooney-produced documentary The Art of Political Murder; I mostly post this to plug the book "Who Killed the Bishop?: The Art of Political Murder" by frequent New Yorker contributor Francisco Goldman, which is a fascinating examination of the murder of a Guatemalan bishop and the violent history of that country, and is also one of the single best non-fiction works of the century so far.

Jia Zhangke starting filming his next movie today; no details except a simple poster and a Chinese title, which translates to "Literature of a Village." Probably not a coincidence that today is the opening day of a new literature festival Jia is hosting in his hometown Fenyang, involving big names like Mo Yan, Su Tong, and Yu Hua, as well as a bunch of local/regional writers. I'm wondering if this might actually be a documentary, though the involvement of some major Chinese companies like Huaxia and Huayi Brothers suggests something on a larger scale.

EDIT: Well that was a bad call, Jia has since said that this will be a documentary "about literature and the spiritual reality of the Chinese people."

“When Chris Rock came to us and described in chilling detail his fantastic vision that reimagines and spins-off the world of the notorious Jigsaw Killer, we were all-in,” Joe Drake, the Chairman of Lionsgate’s Motion Picture Group, said in a press release. “Saw is one of the highest grossing horror franchises of all-time and it’s one of Lionsgate’s most successful film series. This upcoming film will still be as mind-bending and intense as all the previous Saw films. Chris conceived this idea and it will be completely reverential to the legacy of the material while reinvigorating the brand with his wit, creative vision, and passion for this classic horror franchise.”
(very Chris Rock voice) The jig----saw killer!

James Gray's next is ‘Armageddon Time’. "Fred Trump, the Queens-based real estate developer who sired Donald Trump, and the current president will appear as characters."

Sounds like it's semi-autobiographical and they're just ancillary characters if that

Ruben Östlund’s Triangle of Sadness sounds fun:
A contemporary satire taking place in the world of fashion, “Triangle of Sadness” is set on a luxury yacht and ends up on a deserted island where hierarchies are turned upside down. The film is produced by Erik Hemmendorff at Plattform Produktion.

The movie, which marks Östlund’s English-language debut and his most ambitious feature ever, is approximately budgeted at 10 million euros.
...
“’Triangle of Sadness’ is an existential candy-bag; reflecting, provocative and entertaining. The bar is as usual set high and we are currently planning the wildest scene ever in the history of film,” said Östlund. “On a luxury yacht, in a storm, passengers are struggling with sea sickness and table etiquette during a captain’s dinner. A really nasty dish will be served.”
I loved The Square, as I know some others here did, and this sounds solidly in that vein of ambitious comedy.

According to IMDb and Wikipedia (without a source), Mel Gibson is already filming the follow-up to The Passion of the Christ. If true, why the utter secrecy? There have been no announcements about the shooting (not even the casting) at all.

He talked about it on Colbert back in 2016 as something he was planning on having finished for this year. Seeing as how that hasn't happened (and there's far more recent word of a naval WW2 project he has planned), something tells me it might be delayed or might not be happening.

I was under the impression that Gibson was doing his remake of The Wild Bunch first. He was actively looking at Jamie Foxx, Michael Fassbender and Peter Dinklage.

Precisely. The Wild Bunch is expected to shoot later this year, and Gibson was reportedly scouting locations for Destroyer last year (a project obviously in the back-burner now). Nothing indicates that the production of Resurrection was imminent.

I suppose IMDb and Wikipedia - both reliant on possibly inaccurate user contribution - screwed the pooch.

Another one from IMDb: Nanni Moretti is filming dramatic comedy La nostra strada (Our road) - "the story of three families living in three apartments in the same bourgeois condominium."
