Hi Film Folk,
Orson Welles’ uncompleted final film The Other Side of the Wind is being finished and released by Netflix.
The film received backing from Clint Eastwood, Edgar Wright, J.J. Abrams, Wes Anderson, Peter Bogdanovich, Steven Soderbergh, Brett Ratner, Sofia Coppola, Jason Reitman and Film Doctor as well as being produced by Filip Jan Rymsza with help from Jurassic World, Back to the Future and Indiana Jones producer Steven Spielberg.
In a statement released today, Filip wrote: “At long last, I’m thrilled to share with you the news that Netflix has acquired global rights and will finance the completion and restoration of The Other Side of the Wind.
“Working closely with Netflix, Producer Frank Marshall and I will oversee the restoration and completion of the film with consultation from Peter Bogdanovich.
“With Netflix’s unparalleled global reach, The Other Side of the Wind will be Orson Welles’ widest release ever… and, hopefully, introduce a whole new generation of film lovers to his work.”
Film Doctor interviewed Filip during the initial fundraising and he explained what he learned about Orson in the process.
