The film company Samuel Goldwyn Films has unveiled a teaser trailer of the drama “waiting for the barbarians” (Waiting for the Barbarians), which is based on the eponymous science fiction novel by Nobel prize winner John Coetzee.
Directed by Ciro Guerra, known for mini-series Green Frontier for Netflix. The main role in the film played by mark Rylance, johnny Depp, Robert Pattinson and Ghana Barbican.
The plot revolves around a Magistrate who runs a small colonial settlement in the desert on the border of a certain Empire. According to the synopsis, soon to him comes Colonel Joll, which was tasked to investigate a possible attack by “barbarians” — the indigenous peoples of the colony, and also to oversee security on the border. The Colonel conducts a series of brutal interrogations, after which, the Empire begins to doubt the loyalty of the Magistrate.
The Premier took place at the Venice film festival in 2019, and August 7, “waiting for the barbarians” comes out on digital platforms.
Recall that johnny Depp will voice the main character in the new animated series.
