John Malkovich and Robert Rodriguez Made a Movie That Won’t Release Until 2115

John Malkovich and Robert Rodriguez have made a movie that won’t be seen for 100 years.

The film, aptly titled “100 Years,” is set in the present but won’t be seen until Nov. 18, 2115, according to io9. Malkovich was approached for an idea by liquor brand Louis XIII Cognac, which is also aged 100 years.

Few details are known about the direction of “100 Years,” though Rodriguez said it’s “emotionally charged.” Three teasers were released, though rather than give any hints about the story, they show the same scene with different interpretations of how the future could look.


“There were several options when the project was first presented of what [the future] would be,” said Malkovich. “An incredibly high tech, beyond computerized version of the world, a post-Chernoybl, 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.”

In a cool twist, Louis XIII will be giving out 1,000 metal tickets that will allow the receiver’s descendants to see the screening of “100 Years” in 100 years.

    So glad the guy who made Spy kids and Shark Boy and Lava Girl is making this film.

  5. Heyneke says:

    What if the disk isnt compatible after a 100 years, LOL.

  6. Bill B. says:

    A rather fascinating idea. Sort of like a time capsule, but does anyone really believe this will be kept under wraps for a 100 years?! Besides that, will there even be movies & screens as we know them in 100 years?!

  7. j says:

    Wow. Can’t wait 100 years to watch a giant ass commercial. Wtf? Noone will remember or care. Anyone see The impossible voyage from 1902? Nnnnnnope.

  8. Martin devlin says:

    I believe Rodriguez had much the same problem with sin city 2. 100 years at least before anybody wants to see that movie too

  9. buffalobilly says:

    screams art basel.
    yikes.

  10. Brad says:

    Too bad for Rodriguez that everyone around in 100 years will know him as the directorial hack that he is. No one will want to see it in 100 years.

  11. Angel Torres says:

    I really hope this is a joke. Almost no one alive now will be alive in 100 yrs and with the way the world is going, releasing this 100 years from now will be least of everyone’s problems
