‘Hereditary’ And ‘Midsommar’ Director Says Next Movie Will Be Four Hours Long

This sounds crazy.

There’s pretty much no doubt in my mind that ‘Midsommar’ and ‘Hereditary’ have been two of the scariest movies of the last couple of years – if not the decade – so I’m excited to hear what director Ari Astor can come up with next.

And it turns out that it’s likely to be even crazier than both of those movies combined. Astor has revealed that his next film is going to be a four hour movie that he describes as a ‘zonky nightmare comedy’, which judging by his previous work doesn’t sound like it will be funny at all but more absolutely brain damaging.

Here’s what the transcript of his talk with the graduating class of 2020 from UC Santa Barbara’s Associated Students Program Board had to say:

Aster revealed that he is working on a “nightmare comedy,” having just finished a new draft.

All I know is that it’s gonna be four hours long and over 17 [years of age].

I mean he’s not giving much away there and if he’s only just finished a new draft it looks like it’s going to be a hell of a long time until we actually see the finished article, but it’s still pretty interesting to know what he’s working on hey? Just wish it wasn’t going to take so long to end up happening.

For more of the same, check out some science proving that ‘Hereditary’ is the scariest movie ever made. Can’t argue with science!
