First Stills For Lars von Trier's 'The House That Jack Built':

The first stills for Lars von Trier's upcoming thriller The House That Jack Built have made their way online.. The film stars: Uma Thurman, Matt Dillon, Bruno Ganz, Siobhan Fallon Hogan, Riley Keough and Sofie Gråbøl..

Plot: USA in the 1970s. We follow the highly intelligent Jack over a span of 12 years and are introduced to the murders that define Jack's development as a serial killer. We experience the story from Jack's point of view, while he postulates each murder is an artwork in itself. As the inevitable police intervention is drawing nearer, he is taking greater and greater risks in his attempt to create the ultimate artwork.

Along the way we experience Jack's descriptions of his personal condition, problems and thoughts through a recurring conversation with the unknown Verge - a grotesque mixture of sophistry mixed with an almost childlike self-pity and psychopathic explanations. The House That Jack Built is a dark and sinister story, yet presented through a philosophical and occasional humorous tale...

Written and Directed By: Lars von Trier - Produced By: Louise Vesth (Zentropa Group).. The House That Jack Built' has already been pre-sold in Germany, Austria, France, Greece, Portugal, Ireland, Hong Kong, Russia, Hungary, the Baltic States, and the Middle East.
