New Trailer for Quentin Dupieux’s Wacky In-Development Film WRONG COPS

     January 17, 2013

After seeing Rubber and Wrong, I’m not sure if writer-director Quentin Dupieux has any depth to his ridiculously bizarre films, but they’re entertaining nonetheless (especially Wrong).  His next film, Wrong Cops, looks equally strange, but it has an unconventional filmmaking process as well.  Dupieux is shooting the multi-chapter film as financing comes in, and releasing what he has so far at festivals.  He debuted 14 minutes of the movie at Cannes last spring, and he’ll be premiering the first 45 minutes at Sundance.  The film stars Marilyn Manson, Eric Wareheim, Mark Burnham, Ray Wise, Steve Little, Jon LaJoie, and Grace Zariskie.  I’m curious how Dupieux pulls together his cast and crew to repeatedly come back to work once more financing has come in.

As for the film itself, watch the trailer and you’ll see why it’s tough to describe the movie beyond “Cops behaving badly (as if the title didn’t already clue you in).”  The trailer says the finished film should be ready by this summer.

Via Twitch.

Here’s the press release:

Imagine a Los Angeles where crime is so low that a bored cop (Mark Burnham) sells drugs and harasses a teenager (Marilyn Manson) to pass the time. Shot in stand-alone chapters as it is being financed, screened, and released, Wrong Cops is gonzo filmmaking with a unique online strategy. Watch the first 45 minutes of craziness, and then dive into conversation with the cast and creative team.

WRONG COPS is written and directed by Quentin Dupieux (RUBBER) and produced by Gregory Bernard. The first 45 minutes of the project (Chapter 1-3) will be showcased at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.

WRONG COPS: CHAPTER 1 cast include:
Mark Burnham, Marilyn Manson, Grace Zabriskie, Daniel Quinn, and Eddie Tapia

WRONG COPS: CHAPTER 2 cast include:
Mark Burnham, Steve Little, Daniel Quinn, Isabella Palmier, Hillary Tuck, Alyssa Preston, Norton Leufven, Pete Cross and Steve Howey

WRONG COPS: CHAPTER 3 cast include:
Mark Burnham, Steve Little, Arden Myrin, Eric Wareheim, Don Stark, Agnes Bruckner, Brandon Beemer and Jon Lajoe
