Lars Von Trier Set To Direct English-Language TV Skein

Twenty years after creating Danish hit mini-series “The Kingdom,” Lars von Trier (“Nymphomaniac”) will head back into TV with “The House That Jack Built,” an English language series.

The TV project was unveiled by Zentropa producer Louise Vesth during the press conference for “Nymphomaniac Volume 2 – Director’s Cut” (pictured above) at Venice.

Von Trier is expected to start writing the script this fall. The plot of the series and cast have yet to be unveiled.

Sold by TrustNordisk, the show will be produced by Vesth. Peter Aalbæk Jensen, Zentropa’s founder and von Trier’s longtime producer, will exec produce . The series will be developed in association with Denmarks Radio and executive producer Piv Bernth.

Aalbæk Jensen is looking to build anticipation for the series, claiming “it will be a TV series without precedent.”

Zentropa will be casting high-profile talent for “The House,” which is due to start lensing in 2016.

“The Kingdom,” the chilling four-parter co-directed by von Trier and Morten Arnfred in 1994, has become cult.
