I thought this was a Chris Morris forum. nobody seems to care.
According to wikipedia, the film is ''believed to revolve around an FBI agent who comes into conflict with her superiors and an FBI operation gone wrong''. it's rather vague but hopefully it will be good.

In case you missed it, there has been some prior discussion of the film here. I expect people will start chatting about it more when a release date and/or some publicity is announced.

It's odd that shooting was completed over a year ago and this is the first we've heard of the title, I know editing a film normally takes a good few months but I still don't know why it's taken so long to come out. Maybe they just took a long time to find a US distributor or something but I'd be interested to hear from Morris himself about the matter.

Interesting tidbit:

"The biggest single production award went to The King’s Speech producer See-Saw which was granted £1.5M for its under-the-radar Untitled Chris Morris Project."

Excellent. Was just thinking about the man Morris this morning.

I'm interested in the fact Morris is listed as sole writer for this (assuming IMDB is correct). Been a long time since we've had some real solo stuff from him - as much as I loved Four Lions, it didn't entirely feel like Morris to me.

Was just wondering what happened to this - IMDB gave me the title and Google bounced me to this thread.

Anna Kendrick's Instagram photos (the ones with her wearing an FBI uniform and carrying a machine gun) were posted in July 2017. The news stories linking them to Morris came out in November of that year. It's now been a year and a half and we've only just got the title, it looks like.

Is that an unusually long time for a film to be made? I would've thought something shot in the summer of 2017 would be about ready to emerge into the light of day by now, but this article from a couple of days ago suggests that since the film isn't appearing at Sundance (which is where Four Lions premiered) later this month it'll most likely premiere either at Berlin in February or (more likely) Toronto in September.

Then again, I suppose smaller-budget films with big ambitions can take longer to shoot as they don't have the sheer production machinery of a blockbuster.

If I hadn't already spunked away all my holiday for next year I'd be tempted to book a holiday for that. Hm, maybe a long weekend... how early do they announce the festival lineups, and how easy is it to get tickets? Never been to a proper, big-name film festival before.

Not sure on lineups and tickets, but flights to TO are fairly cheap if you fly Porter into the island airport downtown. You’re in NYC right? I think they leave from La guardia but I may have that wrong. $250 USD return maybe.

You’d be welcome to join the Toronto contingent to watch it, pretty sure we’ll organize something if TIFF is indeed the premier.

New info about the film:

"Four Lions filmmaker Morris is understood to be close to completion on The Day Shall Come. The film is produced by See-Saw Films with US outfit Archer Gray, Film4 and the BFI, and stars Marchant Davis, Danielle Brooks, Anna Kendrick and Denis O’Hare.

An impoverished preacher in Miami is offered cash to save his family from eviction. He has no idea his sponsor works for the FBI, who plan to turn him into a criminal by fueling his madcap revolutionary dreams."

Get on the festival mailing list at tiff.net.

I've never attended, but TIFF is pretty audience-friendly as far as big festivals go. You buy blocks of tickets for your desired films up front, first come first served. If you miss out on that and don't mind lining up for a few hours, they have rush lines outside the venue before the screening too.

You can always come back for a weekend if you’re on the same continent...

We’ll see. Working with a company long term so options to wangle a flight over.
