Today’s Top Story: German's 'Trudno byt Bogom' set for fall release

on July 22, 2013

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the long-awaited final picture by Russian director Aleksei German will be released this fall. German died in February at age 74.

Trudno byt Bogom (Hard to be a God) will be completed by Aleksei German Jr., who is an accomplished director of his own. The film is still moving in his father’s direction, “working from his notes, directions, desires and will, and that is the most important.”

Work on the film is going as scheduled. “The original image has been cleaned and computer graphic work has been completed. Work on color correction has started,” German Jr. said. 

Trudno byt Bogom is an adaptation of the 1963 Russian science-fiction novel by Arkady and Boris Srugatsky. This film has been a long time coming, as filming began as early as 1999.
