It looks like Kusturica took about a year’s break in filming (which isn’t completely uncustomary for him), which resumed summer of 2014. Now, a poster has debuted and we’re thinking this should finally be ready for 2015, especially since Kusturica has recently announced plans for a new project, a French/Belarus co-production set to film mid 2015.
