Keanu Reeves To Star In Ruben Östlund’s New Satire ‘The Entertainment System Is Down’

Excitement is running high in the film industry as Keanu Reeves is confirmed to star in Ruben Östlund’s upcoming film, ‘The Entertainment System Is Down’, alongside Kirsten Dunst and Daniel Brühl.

 

The film, a sharp social satire, marks another ambitious project by the two-time Palme d’Or-winning director.

 

On a long-haul flight, the narrative unfolds when the plane’s entertainment system fails, plunging passengers into boredom.

 

This scenario is a creative adaptation inspired by a psychological experiment at the University of Virginia titled ‘The Challenge Of The Disengaged Mind.’ The study explored people’s discomfort with inactivity, revealing that many would rather self-administer electric shocks than sit alone with their thoughts.

 

Östlund has purchased a retired Boeing 747 to use as the main set, promising an immersive and authentic backdrop for the film’s events.

 

Filming is scheduled to begin in early 2025, with additional notable actors expected to join the cast.

 

The film is Östlund’s seventh film and his second in English, following successes such as ‘Force Majeure’ and ‘Triangle of Sadness’, both of which collected him the prestigious Cannes Palme d’Or. The project will be a Swedish-German-French co-production, involving Östlund’s longtime collaborator Erik Hemmendorff of Plattform Produktion and Philippe Bober of the Paris-based Coproduction Office, which is also handling world sales.

 

With pre-sales expected to close at the Cannes market this week, where the project is making its debut, expectations are high for what promises to be a fascinating exploration of human nature and societal norms.
