TAXIDERMIA Director Prepping Stanislaw Lem's HIS MASTER'S VOICE

The world is about to get a little bit stranger and I could not be more excited.

Taxidermia, Free Fall and Hukkle director Gyorgy Palfi has won an intensely loyal cadre of fans around the globe with his work to date - work that is often challenging, frequently outrageous and never ever boring - and he looks poised to reach his largest audience yet with his first English language work due to begin principal photography on July 18.

Titled simply The Voice, Paly's next is an adaptation of Stanislaw Lem's 1968 novel His Master's Voice and will be by far the largest scale production Palfi has engaged in to date. Cineuropa pitches the story like this:

The plot follows a thirty-something Hungarian journalist who has never met his father, who defected to the US in the 1970s and disappeared. However, as he is about to start his own family, the journalist decides to travel to the States to find him. As a scientist, the father worked in a research group that examined "voices" from space in search of evidence of extra-terrestrial intelligent life…

Lem is a titan in his own right and enormously idiosyncratic himself so the collission of these two forces on the big screen should yield very interesting results, indeed. No cast has been announced yet but we will be following progress closely.

Hukkle is in my top 10 and Taxidermia is bizarre must-see. If I could do a pirouette, I'd be dizzy right now.

Yes!

Somehow the only words I can think of for this are: Yes, Yes, Yes! This is bound to be good!

Sharing the enthusiasm of the comments below. This is wonderful news!

I always get a kick out of showing people the beginning of Taxidermia.

"Hmmm, curious, weird, wait, what's that guy doing with that candle? Hmmm...

Holy shit his dick is a flamethrower!!!"

Never gets old.

I am on principle always in favor of more Stanislaw Lem adaptations because reminding/informing the human race of the existence of Lem is an absolute good in and of itself.
