Yahoo has an exclusive clip detailing the new work going into “The Other Side of the Wind,” Orson Welles’ unfinished film, which Netflix acquired global rights to yesterday. Filip Jan Rymsza, who’s among the producers overseeing the movie’s completion and restoration, takes center stage in the video. Watch below.
“We could not ask for better partners or a better home. I’m immensely grateful to the whole Netflix team for their tireless effort and unwavering support,” Rymsza said in a statement accompanying yesterday’s news. “With Netflix’s global reach, this will undoubtedly be the widest release of any Orson Welles film, if not all of them combined. In the video, he and others load up materials to be transported from Bagnolet, France to Los Angeles.
Welles first began shooting “The Other Side of the Wind” in 1970 but had yet to complete it before his death in 1985. John Huston, Peter Bogdanovich, Oja Kodar (who co-wrote the script) Robert Random and Dennis Hopper star in the Hollywood satire, which follows a celebrated director trying to make his comeback with a new movie called, you guessed it, “The Other Side of the Wind.”
