Shane Carruth teases his next film, The Modern Ocean

The director of Primer and Upstream Color is taking to the high seas

I just interviewed Shane Carruth today about Upstream Color, the early candidate for my favorite film of 2013. During our discussion about his DIY approach to filmmaking, Carruth mentioned a script that he's finishing up that he hopes to shoot soon called The Modern Ocean. It's a much bigger undertaking than Primer and Upstream Color, and he's currently looking for financing to make the movie happen. Here's an excerpt from the interview:

Is this next film you're talking about A Topiary or is it another project?

It's called The Modern Ocean. It's set against shipping routes all over the world. It's basically, at its core, a truly tragic romance, but it's in a world full of pirates and privateers, and ships at war at sea.

In addition to writing and directing the film, Carruth also intends to compose the score and do the cinematography for The Modern Ocean.

Look for our full interview with Shane Carruth next week. Upstream Color opens in New York on April 5th, and expands to additional cities in the weeks afterward.
