Trivia The House That Jack Built
The House That Jack Built was originally announced as an eight-part miniseries in September 2014 when the completed version of 'Nymphomaniac' premiered at the Venice Film Festival. But in February 2016, Lars von Trier announced via a video on his official Facebook page that The House That Jack Built would be his next theatrical release, due in theaters in 2018.
Von Trier planned the filming in two parts so that he could edit part of the film in between the shooting. This is the first time the director works like this.
A shot of Jack and Verge standing in a boat is reminiscent of the painting "The Raft of the Medusa" (Le Radeau de La Méduse) by Jean-Louis André Théodore Géricault. It also bears resemblance to "La Barque de Dante" by Eugène Delacroix.
