Director Harmony Korine Still Trying to Figure Out “The Trap” @Dazed

Your next movie is The Trap. Have you started filming?

Harmony Korine: No. I’m still figuring it out. I was supposed to shoot it last year. We were two weeks out. I got as close to shooting as you could be, and then I had issues with one of the actors. We had to pause the film, and then the movie got pushed back on the dates. I don’t really want to go into specifics, but it was more of a personality thing with one of the actors.

So, we put a halt to the film and recast the movie. We’re supposed to wait until this May to shoot it. I just have this thing where I lose interest in things after a while. Even though that movie was ready to go, I have this other idea for a film. An idea kept cracking me up and cracking me up. I spent the last couple of months writing this thing, and I’m pretty much almost done with this script. I feel like I’m maybe going to do this new one first.

A different cast?

Harmony Korine: It’s a totally different movie. I don’t want to talk about the idea yet. But I will say, it’s very funny. It’s closer to a cross between a Cheech and Chong movie and that movie Scarecrow.
