The future just got brighter.

Can you see that distant gleam on the horizon? That’s the sparkle of a new Whit Stillman film.

It’s called Dancing Mood.

I found the good news on Vulture

If, like us, you’ve been wondering what on earth Whit Stillman has been doing since 1998, and when he might direct another movie, check out his interview with Karina Longworth at Spoutblog. The director of urbane and beloved nineties indie comedies Metropolitan, Barcelona, and The Last Days of Disco says that he’s finally preparing to shoot a movie set in Jamaica in the sixties called Dancing Mood. (He described the movie to “Page Six” last year as being “about the gospel church and the music scene from pre-reggae days, including ska,” which sounds, um, awesome.) Here’s hoping this actually turns out to be true!

And the best DVD news (news? Perhaps “possibility” is better.) in ages….

The good news? There’s word a Criterion edition of Disco might be coming out soon.

The Last Days of Disco is the most valuable DVD in my collection. Why? It’s brilliant. And it’s been out of print for a long, long time. Just try pricing it on Amazon.
