Surreal Indie Swiss Army Man


Indie flick Swiss Army Man picked up a strong trio for its leads: Daniel Radcliffe, Paul Dano, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead. It is unknown who will play who in the film. Shooting begins July 13. Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert will direct the film. The Tadmor Group and Cold Iron Pictures will co-finance and produce.

A bit more in depth info:
Swiss Army Man started out as a silly short film idea years ago involving a stranded guy riding a dead body’s farts off of an island like a jet ski. That was it. Then we started trying to come up with some sort of story that would give us an excuse to do that in a movie and we accidentally wrote a really deeply personal story. Now it’s become this puzzle of a story that still fascinates us. And it’s sort of the ultimate feature-sized example of the narrative and visual roller coaster movies we’ve been working on the past few years together. It’s gonna’ be our Apocalypse Now, where we disappear into the forest for weeks and lose our minds and discover who we are as men.
