A well-known director and a well-known star have joined forces to make a movie that is unlikely to be seen by anyone reading this. That’s because the movie will not be released for another 100 years.
The project from director Robert Rodriguez, starring John Malkovich, was announced by Louis XIII Cognac. The movie is called “100 Years.”
Here’s what the press release says about it: “Louis XIII Cognac, one of the most luxurious spirits in the world, announced an original film, starring actor John Malkovich, which envisions Earth one hundred years from now and will not be released until 2115. Directed by Robert Rodriguez, ‘100 Years,’ the movie you will never see, was inspired by the century of careful craftsmanship and patience it takes to create each decanter of Louis XIII Cognac.”
The movie is scheduled to premiere on Nov. 18, 2115, and “was placed in a state-of-the-art safe which will open automatically in 100 years when the timing is complete,” the announcement says. “One thousand guests from around the world received an exclusive invitation to give to their descendants to attend the premiere of ‘100 Years,’ on November 18, 2115, at the House of Louis XIII in Cognac, France.”
Malkovich has received Academy Award nominations for “Places in the Heart” and “In the Line of Fire.” Rodriguez is known for films including “From Dusk Till Dawn,” and developed the El Rey TV series based on the feature films.
