A Feel-Bad Romance – Movie Stories

Controversial director John Waters returns to the world of cinema for the first time in nearly two decades with Liarmouth: a sentimental romance.

There is no doubt that John Waters is a director who happily divides opinions. Extreme excesses of early films like Pink flamingos in 1972 until his last film A dirty shame in 2004, Waters courted controversy for the content of his films, be it nudity, profanity or general bad taste.

This trend isn’t about to break anytime soon, as his next project, Liarmouth: a sentimental romance is announced.

The novel it’s based on “follows Marsha Sprinkle, a suitcase stealer, trickster, and master of disguise. Dogs and children hate her. Her own family wants her dead. She’s smart, she’s desperate, she’s troubled and she’s on the run with a big chip on her shoulder. They call her Liarmouth, until some madman makes her tell the truth.

Waters will write and direct Village Roadshow Pictures.

He said of the project that “Liarmouth is the craziest thing I’ve written in a while, so maybe it’s fitting that my novel was shocking enough to kickstart my movie career. I’m thrilled to be back in the movie business, hopefully spreading insane joy to adventurous moviegoers everywhere.”

No casting has been announced yet, but we’ll let you know as soon as we know more.
