SALOMÉ | WILD SALOMÉ Trailer Sheds New Light on Al Pacino’s Jessica Chastain Project

Wow, how long has it been since we’ve heard from Wild Salomé? Almost three years, that’s how long.  But now it appears as though Al Pacino’s examination of how Oscar Wilde’s play impacted his mind is finally being primed for release (despite playing at the Venice Film Festival in 2011).  And now it’s going to be packaged as a double bill with Salomé, what is apparently Pacino’s actual adaptation of the play.  Bonus? They both star Jessica Chastain.

Right now it seems as though this double bill will only be screening in the U.K. (Stephen Fry is hosting a screening on Sunday, September 21st) but we’ll let you know if that changes.  Hit the jump for the Salomé and Wild Salomé trailer!

This thing looks kind of nuts in a great way.  Sort of like Pacino’s rumpled take on Charlie Kaufman’s pseudo-meltdown in Adaptation.

Here’s the official synopsis from 2011:

Referred to by actor/director Al Pacino as his most personal project ever, the unconventional feature documentary “Wilde Salome” invites audiences into Pacino’s private world, as he explores the complexities of Oscar Wilde’s acclaimed play “Salome,” Wilde himself and the birth of a rising star in actress Jessica Chastain.
