Drew Barrymore to shoot the end of the world
LOS ANGELES, Aug 3 — Drew Barrymore will direct "The End", a film about the end of mankind, according to “The Hollywood Reporter”.
Barrymore will be back behind the camera after her 2009 directorial debut “Whip It”. The film, produced by Warner Bros, will intertwine three plot threads as the world comes to an end.
Aron Coleite, whose previous work includes “Heroes”, is in charge of penning the script, which will revolve around a teenage couple hailing from tough family backgrounds, a father looking for his wife and kid in Tokyo, and a British sixty-something radio host who wants to continue working until the end.
Barrymore has two other films lined up to direct; “How to Be Single”, set in New York, and teen movie “Heist Society”.
“The End” is just the latest in a series of movies about the end of the world, from Roland Emmerich's “2012” to Lars von Trier's “Melancholia” and the more recent “Seeking a Friend for the End of the World”, starring Steve Carell and Keira Knightley. — AFP/Relaxnews
