The first official images from Terry Gilliam’s upcoming sci-fi The Zero Theorem have been released. The story centres on Qohen Leth (Christoph Waltz), a reclusive computer genius working on a formula to determine whether life holds meaning. I’m hoping the studio decides to release a trailer soon. Tilda Swinton, Ben Whishaw, David Thewlis, Melanie Thierry, Peter Stormare and Sanjeev Bhaskar also star. The film currently has no release date.
Qohen Leth is an eccentric and reclusive computer genius who lives in an Orwellian corporate world and suffers from existential angst. Under the instruction of a shadowy figure known only as “Management”, Qohen works to solve the “Zero Theorem” – a mathematical formula which will finally determine whether life has any meaning. Qohen’s work in the burnt-out chapel that serves as his home is interrupted by visits from Bainsley, a seductive woman, and Bob, the teenage son of Management.
