There’s a ridiculous melodramatic booming score and a Nazi-rally finale which the director enjoyed that bit too much..m-zeitgeist /* for the IE6 lols */ .m-zeitgeist .m-zeitgeist h2 .m-zeitgeist #att-panes .m-zeitgeist .att-toggle-pane .m-zeitgeist ol .m-zeitgeist #most-zeitgeist ol .m-zeitgeist .zg-date .m-zeitgeist ol li .m-zeitgeist div#att-most-viewed ol li.l1, .m-zeitgeist div#att-latest ol li.l1 .m-zeitgeist ol li.
Brady Corbet is moving from fascist children to aspiring pop stars in the follow-up to his award winning directorial debut, “The Childhood of a Leader.” Corbet will next write and direct the drama “Vox Lux,” The Wrap can report exclusively.The movie will be produced by Christine Vachon‘s Killer Films and Brian Young of Three Six Zero Group. It is described as “a 21st century story of Celeste, a pop star who comes to success as a result of unusual circumstances.” Casting for the lead role has not yet been announced.“I needed a new experience with a quicker turnaround.” “Childhood,” which followed the molding of a fascist leader at the close of WWI, took the 72nd Venice Film Festival Orizzonti Best Director prize, as well as the Luigi De Laurentiis Lion of the Future Award for debut film.Before stepping behind the camera, Corbet appeared in numerous acclaimed indies like Sean Durkin‘s “Martha Marcy May Marlene,” Olivier Assayas‘ “Clouds of Sils Maria” and Lars von Trier‘s “Melancholia.” He also co-wrote and starred in “Simon Killer,” a 2012 indie from Antonio Campos, and appeared in the Emmy-winning HBO limited series “Olive Kitteridge.” Vachon’s Killer Films is a storied indie house.He played Mason Freeland in Thirteen and portrayed Alan Tracy in Thunderbirds.
He first acted in an episode of The King of Queens when he was 10.
From a tilt of the camera that barely shows the actors, to a story about fascism that you need to work really hard at even to know it’s about fascism, it is an understatement to say that The Childhood of a Leader is so far removed from its star’s huge vampire breakthrough, Twilight, that it will share absolutely none of the same fans.
It’s like Justin Bieber giving up chart-friendly pop hits to record an album of Indonesian electro.
Already at the age of years of age, he has won different awards for his acting skills and directorial- Young Hollywood Awards, Short Filmmaking Award at Sundance Film Festival, Luigi De Laurentiis Award at 72nd Venice International Film Festival, etc.
Corbet is working hard and his hard work is giving best results for him having an estimated net worth at millions of dollars with the fan following in an increasing ratio.
So, in a members’ club in London, over morning coffee, I ask the actor, why — why do something this peculiar?
