MR NOBODY Director Finds God In Belgium, Writes THE BRAND NEW TESTAMENT
Say what you will about Belgian writer director Jaco Van Dormael but he never seems to take the easy road. His ideas are huge, his vision uncompromising and if that means long gaps between his projects then so be it.

Van Dormael was lost on screens with 2009 effort Mr Nobody, a fascinating slice of arthouse scifi, and fans wondering when he would return won't have to wait too much longer with word that he is now in post production on upcoming dark comedy The Brand New Testament (Le Tout Nouveau Testament).

Set in Jaco Van Dormael's native Belgium, The Brand New Testament is a surreal comedy in which God is a real life character who lives in Brussels. On earth though, God is a coward, with pathetical morals and being odious with his family. His daughter, Ea, is bored at home and can't stand being locked up in a small apartment in ordinary Brussels, until the day she decides to revolt against her dad, hacks his computer and leak to the entire world their fatale date of death, causing everyone to suddenly have to think about what to do with the days, months, years they have left to live...
Benoit Poelvoorde, Yolande Moreau and Catherine Deneauve star.
