It took Raoul Peck the best part of 10 years to make his last two films.
For his efforts, I am Not Your Negro earned an Oscar nomination, alongside more than 10 international awards, and looks set to break the box-office record for Magnolia Pictures, while the biopic Young Karl Marx bowed in Berlin in February and The Orchard is in line for a fall release.
Hopefully the director’s next project won’t come with such a lengthy production schedule.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter in London ahead of I am Not Your Negro‘s U.K. release April 7, Peck said there were several ideas in the pipeline.
“Some I’ve been offered to do and others that I’ve had for a long time on my list, and think those are the projects that have a good chance to be made,” he said.
While he wouldn’t reveal the subject matter, Peck said he expected his next film to be a narrative.
“There is one potential doc but that’s too early to say. It’s good that I have the freedom to think about it,” he said, adding that he’d just spent a week pitching in L.A. “I think they went well! I’ll have a job again in a few months. They didn’t kick me out!”
