Actor John Malkovich is collaborating with Robert Rodriguez on a film that you will never ever see, ingeniously entitled, 100 Years: the Movie You Will Never See.
Inspired by a partnership with Louis XIII cognac, which incidentally takes 100 years to age, the film has been locked in a vault where it will stay until 2115, when it will be shown to the next next generation. This year, however, the film will be shown at Cannes – that is to say, the film locked within a vault will be on display at Cannes – this month before being secreted away into a safe where it will stay for another century.
“Part of the notion inherent in this is for us to try to imagine what the world will be like in 100 years,” Malkovich says in the teaser. Rodriguez adds, “I was intrigued by the concept of working on a film that nobody would ever see in my lifetime. I just thought it was a very clever and fascinating concept to do something which essentially certainly I will never see,” he told People.
