David Lynch making new films with Herzog, Jodorowsky

David Lynch

My Son, My Son is based on the true story of a man who, based upon a play by Sophocles, kills his mother with a sword. Lynchian enough already, the film will tell the story in a flashback structure. Also following Lynch's style, it will be shot in DV rather than film. My Son was actually delayed in order for Herzog to work with Cage while his schedule allows.  He'll also be tight on shooting afterwards, since he's signed on to shoot The Piano Tuner this fall. With his documentary Encounters at the End of the World out this summer, even for Herzog, 2008 is one prolific year.
