100 Years is an upcoming science fiction film written by John Malkovich and directed by Robert Rodriguez. It is due to be released on 18 November 2115.[1][2] The film stars an international cast: American actor John Malkovich, Chinese actress Shuya Chang, and Chilean actor Marko Zaror.

Confirmed cast[edit]

Production[edit]

Malkovich and Rodriguez announced in November 2015 that they had teamed with Louis XIII Cognac, owned by Rémy Martin, to create a film inspired by the hundred years it takes to make a bottle of Louis XIII.[3] Although the film's plot remains a complete secret, on 18 November 2015, Malkovich and Rodriguez released three teaser trailers: Retro,[4] Nature,[5] and Future.[6] None showed footage from the film, but instead imagined three possible futures, from a dystopic wasteland to a technological paradise.

Release[edit]

Pending release, the film is being kept in a high-tech safe behind bulletproof glass that will open automatically on 18 November 2115, the day of the film's premiere. One thousand guests from around the world, including Malkovich and Rodriguez, have received a pair of invitation tickets made of metal for the premiere, which they can hand down to their descendants.[3][7][8] The safe in which 100 Years is kept was showcased at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival and various other cities before being returned to Cognac, France and the Louis XIII cellars.[9]

A song "100 Years", composed by Pharrell Williams in collaboration with Louis XIII, will be released in 2117.[10]
