Thriller Spiller: Joko Anwar Drops Hints About His Upcoming Movies
The Indonesian film industry is certainly not dead â€” especially not in the horror and thriller departments. Acclaimed director Joko Anwar is fixing up two spine-chilling big screen projects to be released next year.
â€œOne of the projects ‘Modus Anomali’ is a thriller about a man who is trying to save his family from a mysterious killer on a joyfully planned vacation,â€ said Joko.
The award-winning director will set the movie in a forest â€” he’d like to film it in Italy, but will still hunt for a perfect local set â€” and will start the production this November.
â€œIt’s going to be a very twisted storyline,â€ said Joko. â€œThe movie will feature only three characters in a majority of the scenes, and there will be a very limited dialogue. It’s definitely going to be very mysterious.â€
Joko will feature Indonesian actors, but wrote the script in English, aiming to introduce his movie to a wider international audience.
