Alejandro Jodorowsky is gearing up for a sequel to “The Dance Of Reality.” The picture is called “Endless Poetry,” and finds the filmmaker gathering together Dante Jodorowsky, Adan Jodorowsky, Brontis Jodorowsky, Pamela Flores, and Leandro Taub for the fantastical telling of “Jodorowsky’s teenage years in Santiago, Chile” chronicling “his struggle to overcome family pressure and find his path as an artist and a poet.” A crowd-funding campaign for the low-budget movie kicks off later this month.

Alex De la Iglesia (“Witching & Bitching,” “The Last Circus“) will next direct the comedy “My Big Night.” The story “unspools at a lavish New Year’s Eve TV show, where the frenzied fake bonhomie contrasts with the shoot date – a sweltering mid-August – the participants’ actions and sentiments, and the solitude of the studio’s setting.” Filming starts this month.

The Guest” director Adam Wingard will know go into “The Woods.” He’s set to helm the Simon Barrett-penned tale about “a group of college students on a camping trip who discover they are not alone.” We’re sure Wingard and co will part their own unique spin on that horror trope. [THR]

Prolific Hong Kong director Johnnie To is keeping very busy. First, he’ll team with John Woo, Tsui Hark, Ann Hui, Ringo Lam, Patrick Tam, Sammo Hung, and Yuen Woo-ping for an omnibus feature about the history of their city. To will also direct a new action thriller starring Louis Koo about “an ex-convict who ends up in hospital after a heist, where he is caught in the crossfire between gangsters and undercover cops.” [Screen Daily]
