The Last Word, written by prolific Danish writer Kim Fupz Aakeson, was sold in Cannes by TrustNordisk. It is being billed as “a story about two people who fall in love just as the world starts falling apart”.

It is a co-production between Sigma Films (Scotland), Zentropa (Denmark) and Amusementpark Films (Germany. It will be produced by Gillian Berrie, Sisse Graum Jorgensen and Malte Grunert. It is supported by Scottish Screen.

This is director Mackenzie’s sixth feature film, following Spread, one of the highest selling films at Sundance thisyear; Hallam Foe, the Berlinale Silver Bear winning film with Jamie Bell in the eponymous role; the erotic thriller Asylum for which its star, Natasha Richardson, won the Evening Standard Award for Best Actress; Young Adam, starring Ewan McGregor and Emily Mortimer which won a host of awards including four Scottish BAFTAs; and thriller The Last Great Wilderness.

Overture Films has released a trailer for Grant Heslov’s The Men Who Stare At Goats. Based on Jon Ronson’s 2004 book, Ewan McGregor stars in this so-unbelievable-yet-true story of a reporter who is chasing after a crazy story. U.S. Army First Earth Battalion unit member Lyn Cassady (George Clooney) claims to be part of an experimental U.S. military unit using ancient Chinese mind techniques to develop paranormal powers for American soldiers. This elite experimental group have developed “unparalleled psychic powers to read the enemy’s thoughts, pass through solid walls, and even kill a goat simply by staring at it.”

This dark comedy also features Jeff Bridges, and Kevin Spacey. The screenplay was also featured on the 2006 Black List, a listing of the best unproduced screenplays of the year. The film is set to premiere next month at the Toronto International Film Festival, before hitting theaters nationwide on November 6th.
