Guy Maddin is a mad genius. He’s an art film guru, a man who does things his own way, doesn’t hold hands and if you can’t follow, too bad. He has an intuitive mind and crazy skills that result in such great films as The Saddest Music in the World and Tales from the Gimli Hospital. For years he’s been a staple of the Cinematheques but 2007’s My Winnipeg put him on the radar of much wider audience.

Maddin has been busy making short films (earlier in the year we shared Night Mayor with you) but it looks like’s he’s ready to take on another full length feature, one that’s going to start shooting in July.

Keyhole is described as “a kind of Maddin-esque variation of Homer's The Odyssey.” I’m already salivating but if that’s not enough, there’s also the cast which includes Jason Patric, Udo Kier, Kevin McDonald and Isabella Rossellini.

Here’s some more on the story:

A gangster who returns home after a long absence toting a drowned girl, Denny, who has mysteriously returned to life, and a bound-and-gagged hostage, who is actually his own teenage son, Manners.

This is so exciting, it’s almost beyond words.

Check out the entire interview with Maddin on the new project over at the Winnipeg Free Press (via Cinematical).
