James Gray's next is ‘Armageddon Time’. "Fred Trump, the Queens-based real estate developer who sired Donald Trump, and the current president will appear as characters."

Sounds like it's semi-autobiographical and they're just ancillary characters if that

Ruben Östlund’s Triangle of Sadness sounds fun:
A contemporary satire taking place in the world of fashion, “Triangle of Sadness” is set on a luxury yacht and ends up on a deserted island where hierarchies are turned upside down. The film is produced by Erik Hemmendorff at Plattform Produktion.

The movie, which marks Östlund’s English-language debut and his most ambitious feature ever, is approximately budgeted at 10 million euros.
...
“’Triangle of Sadness’ is an existential candy-bag; reflecting, provocative and entertaining. The bar is as usual set high and we are currently planning the wildest scene ever in the history of film,” said Östlund. “On a luxury yacht, in a storm, passengers are struggling with sea sickness and table etiquette during a captain’s dinner. A really nasty dish will be served.”
I loved The Square, as I know some others here did, and this sounds solidly in that vein of ambitious comedy.

According to IMDb and Wikipedia (without a source), Mel Gibson is already filming the follow-up to The Passion of the Christ. If true, why the utter secrecy? There have been no announcements about the shooting (not even the casting) at all.

He talked about it on Colbert back in 2016 as something he was planning on having finished for this year. Seeing as how that hasn't happened (and there's far more recent word of a naval WW2 project he has planned), something tells me it might be delayed or might not be happening.

I was under the impression that Gibson was doing his remake of The Wild Bunch first. He was actively looking at Jamie Foxx, Michael Fassbender and Peter Dinklage.

A fine collection of box office poison

Precisely. The Wild Bunch is expected to shoot later this year, and Gibson was reportedly scouting locations for Destroyer last year (a project obviously in the back-burner now). Nothing indicates that the production of Resurrection was imminent.

I suppose IMDb and Wikipedia - both reliant on possibly inaccurate user contribution - screwed the pooch.

Another one from IMDb: Nanni Moretti is filming dramatic comedy La nostra strada (Our road) - "the story of three families living in three apartments in the same bourgeois condominium."

I suppose this remake has the benefit of not having Harvey Weinstein being involved in any capacity. So there's that.

Sounds like a sequel to Inside Out

Christian Petzold has begun shooting Undine.
Named after the water nymph that seduces men in a number of mythological tales, the German director’s new movie will portray Undine (Paula Beer) as a history graduate who works as a guide in Berlin in the present day. After her partner (Jacob Matschenz) leaves her for another woman, she is cursed and compelled to kill the man who betrayed her and return to the waters she was once summoned from. Yet unlike the mythological character, in the film, Undine tries to defy her fate. Immediately after the break-up, she meets Christoph (Franz Rogowski), an industrial diver, and falls in love with him. The two have a wonderful time together until he realises that she is running away from something and starts to feel betrayed.

Petzold's synopsises always sounds a bit bland and end up being fascinating so I'll wait to see how this turns out
