Hugo stars Chloe Moretz and Asa Butterfield are getting back together for a new movie called The White Circus, according to Variety, with Terry Gilliam producing the movie. Andrea Riseborough and Christian Friedel will also star.
White Circus is described as an adventure-romance that takes place on a snowy New Year’s Eve. During a war, a young pilot crashes his plane on his first mission. He then falls in love with a beautiful cabaret singer, befriends a talking circus bear and incites the townsfolk to liberate themselves from a despot.
It does sound suitably weird to get Gilliam involved, although it will be directed by Chris Lavis and Maciek Szczerbowski. They’ve only previously made short film, including the Oscar-nominated ‘Madame Tutli-Putli’.
Don’t expect to see it for a while though, as The White Circus is due to start shooting in Germany and Serbia in February 2014.
