Once again a Fleming gets the chance to show himself to Hollywood. ‘Inside’ will be released next year, a psychological thriller with our own Gene Bervoets (66) in a leading role alongside Willem Dafoe (67). The rest of the film crew also colors strikingly tricolore.
The recordings were already completed in 2021. Inside is a Greek-German-Flemish co-production including Dries Phlypo of the Ghent production house A Private View (Collision in Moscow, My father is a sausage) as a producer. The crew – from technicians to the costume and make-up department – is largely Flemish, and the finishing of the film was also done in our country.
