It seems that director Lars von Trier is moving from one genre to the next. According to The Hollywood Reporter, director Lars von Trier will direct the sci-fi film Planet Melancholia.

Although shooting and post-production will take place in Europe, the film will be an English-language film. Not much was said on the story of the film, but von Trier offered only one, highly-ironic comment: "No more happy endings!"

It was said that the film is aiming for a release at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival. Von Trier's latest film, the highly-controversial Antichrist, will hit theaters on October 23.
