This is news that will delight all film lovers. For his next film “The Fabelmans”, which will be partly inspired by his own childhood, Steven Spielberg has invited the artist and immense filmmaker David Lynch to the casting. A meeting at the top between two legendary directors.
The Fabelmans – Steven Spielberg portrays his childhood
The Fabelmans will be the next film to discover by Steven Spielberg, whose shooting began in July 2021 and whose release is currently planned in theaters on November 23, 2022. We know of this film its free autobiographical inspiration – the childhood in Arizona of a young boy aspiring filmmaker – and his ambition to delve into detailed family history.
A project that Steven Spielberg has had in mind since the end of the 90s, and which is the occasion of his return to writing since AI Artificial intelligence, in collaboration with Tony Kushner. A film where Spielberg recounts his childhood, even in a fictional way, is already a very strong argument. We can add to it an attractive cast which a very great filmmaker has just joined: David Lynch.
The master of the weird joins the king of entertainment
This is a surprising association, to say the least, revealed by variety, bringing together for the first time these two geniuses of cinema. Two filmmakers who share excellence in their art, but who have produced very different works and careers. Thus, the author of the gigantic Mullholland Drive will place himself in front of the camera of the director of Jurassic Park and Munich for a role that has not yet been detailed.
Rumor has it this role could be that of the great filmmaker John Ford, which would make sense but still needs to be verified. A daydream for cinephiles in any case, which completes the already important hype on The Fabelmans.
David Lynch also joins an already well-stocked main cast, articulated around the young boy, Sammy, played by Gabriel LaBelle. There is Julia Butters as her sister Anne, Michelle Williams and Paul Dano as their parents, Seth Rogen as their uncle. Now remains to be discovered The Fabelmansand why not imagine that David Lynch can return the favor to Steven Spielbergoffering him a role in a future production?
