Production[edit]

In May 2017, Schnabel announced that he will direct a film about the painter Vincent van Gogh, with Willem Dafoe cast in the role. The film was written by Schnabel and French screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière.[2][3] In regards to the story, Schnabel said:

This is a film about painting and a painter and their relationship to infinity. It is told by a painter. It contains what I felt were essential moments in his life; this is not the official history – it’s my version. One that I hope could make you closer to him.[4]

The film was shot on location in Arles, Bouches-du-Rhône and Auvers-sur-Oise, France, all locations where Van Gogh lived during his final years.[2]

In May 2018, CBS Films acquired distribution rights to the film.[5] It had its world premiere at the 75th Venice International Film Festival on September 3, 2018.[6][7] It will also screen at the New York Film Festival on October 12, 2018.[8] It is scheduled to be released on November 16, 2018.[9]
