    High Rise (2014/2015)



    Wheatley revealed via Twitter that Hiddleston is the star of High Rise, an adaptation of the JG Ballard novel.

    In High Rise a future apartment building is so advanced and self-contained the inhabitants are totally cut off from the rest of the world. When the power begins to fail and things fall apart the inhabitants start escalating into violence; the building ends up separated into three warring factions - literally the lower class on the bottom floors, the middle class right in the center and the upper class in the luxurious top levels. Legendary producer Jeremy Thomas has been trying to get the movie made for thirty years, and over time Nicolas Roeg and Vincenzo Natali have been attached.
    Starts shooting in June. Reminds me of Dredd and The Raid, but if the novel was from 30+ years ago, then this might be something to watch. A Field in England was awesome, so I am quite excited for this.

    First hour of the movie is pretty good, but then it quickly becomes clear that the filmmakers didn't quite know what to do with the rest of the running time. Lots of weirdness, music-video-type sequences, and slow paced filler make the second half of the flick a bit of a chore to sit through. I'd give it a 6/10.
