O' Salvation!

Postby Lusher » Thu May 20, 2004 8:04 pm

French apparel designer Agnes B., who has created poster campaigns
and in-store promotions for some of the Cannes Film Festival's best-
known filmmakers, has formed a London-based production company with
screenwriter-director Harmony Korine and will partly finance his
next, as yet untitled production. The company with Korine,
O'Salvation!, is part of the designer's expanding portfolio of film
interests. She opened production company Love Streams in Paris in
1997; Nadja Romain runs the company for the designer.

Through Love Streams, Agnes B. has invested in such pics as Gaspar
Noe's "I Stand Alone" and Claire Denis' "Trouble Every Day." She
oversaw the theatrical re-release of John Cassavetes' "Love Streams"
last year in France, and is financing documentaries about composer
Philip Glass and photographer William Eggleston. She is one of the
original sponsors of the Sarajevo Film Festival.

The first production by O'Salvation! is an untitled project written
and directed by James Clauer, who was an associate producer of
Korine's controversial 1997 pic "Gummo."

More than 100 Agnes B. shops have opened around the world since the
first bowed in Paris in 1976. These boutiques have served as a
showcase of the designer's freewheeling interests in the arts. She
runs a contemporary gallery in Paris and a performance space, "b.
yourself," in Tokyo.

Agnes B., who still designs every item in her shops, has also
designed numerous film posters, including an Agnes B. line of posters
for "Kill Bill" and "Bad Education." On Monday, her Cannes shop was
the site of a party for Pedro Almodovar's "Bad Education."

The designer said Clauer's project will begin shooting soon in
Tennessee. She expects Korine's film will be completed in the next
few months.

Korine, who has kept a low profile since 1999's "Julien Donkey-Boy,"
surfaced in London last year to direct a documentary about David
Blaine that aired on the BBC after the magician spent 44 days
suspended in a box without food over the Thames. The label on the
outfit Blaine wore in the box was Agnes B.

Wow, this is definitely the best news I've heard since I don't even know when. Thank you Lusher, for making my day with the reveal of this shit, this right here is the stuff I come to this site for.....this kind of good news.

My god, I almost pissed my pants when I read that B expects it to be done in the next few fucking months, that is nowhere near how long I expected to take. I figured Harmony, I figured he wouldn't even start filming for like another year. But now, man, maybe I'm just wishing here but it sounds like now, there might actually be a chance of his return coming before the end of 2004. And needless to say, that would be the fucking best.

Via a new e-mail I find that this information comes to us by way of Daily Variety.
