TWINKLE TWINKLE / WAY KYK JY / GOD’S JOKE

Harmony Korine currently has two active film projects that we’re aware of, with those being Twinkle, Twinkle and Wat Kyk Jy. Twinkle, Twinkle is said to be a feature film starring Marlon Wayans as a “former hitman who dresses up in a dollar bill costume.” Wat Kyk Jy is a short film with South African rap/rave group Die Antwoord that is believed to have completed production. Speaking recently with Interview here, Korine gave details of the film’s release, saying:

I just directed this short movie, it’s going to come out soon, with this band called Die Antwoord from South Africa, that should probably be out in a couple weeks. It’s going to be spectacular.

Korine was also for a time planning to make a short film entitled God’s Joke, which was to be part of Cinema Reloaded, a special project for the 2011 lineup of the International Film Festival Rotterdam. It was to be one of three short films, each by different directors at the invitation of the festival, that was aiming to be funded entirely by donations made online. Further details of this can be found here. On November 19, 2010, God’s Joke was official cancelled, with Korine explaining on cinemareloaded.com:

I’m sorry to let you know that I’m going to have to cancel my short film project for Cinema Reloaded. A couple of other projects developed quicker than I thought, so I had to move things around in my schedule. Because of this, I cannot give my Cinema Reloaded project enough attention and I can’t complete my short film before January. This is a bummer because I was looking forward to doing it. All the best to Alexis and Yuhang and thank you for your support. See you soon!

Harmony
