The House That Jack Built was set to become a new series by Lars von Trier. However, in a video posted on Facebook, he has announced that he will be turning it into a feature length film instead.
Very little is known about the plot of The House That Jack Built – all we know is that it will most likely follow a serial killer (hence the Bowie quotation in the video) and the film will take place from the killer’s point of view.
This is a controversial concept in itself, as the title refers to the English nursery rhyme This is the House That Jack Built.
