I’m still a little miffed that we didn’t have a chance to see Guy Maddin’s short film Night Mayor last year, the year just doesn’t seem complete without a dose of new Maddin and its been far too long since My Winnipeg, but it looks like Maddin’s latest project, a drama titled Keyhole (which we previously brought you news of last year) is going to more than fill the void.

The good peeps at Twitch have a couple of new images from the film and needless to say, they look fantastic. Also as expected, this looks like it fits nicely into the Maddin playbook and though the story focuses on a gangster, it isn’t going to be your typical gangster film. It is, after all, Guy Maddin we’re talking about here.

Keyhole stars Jason Patric, Udo Kier, Kevin McDonald and Maddin regular Isabella Rossellini in a twisted tale of family drama.

A gangster and deadbeat father, Ulysses Pick (Patric), returns home after a long absence. He is toting two teenagers: a drowned girl, Denny, who has mysteriously returned to life; and a bound-and-gagged hostage, who is actually his own teenage son, Manners. Confused Ulysses doesn't recognize his own son, but he feels with increasing conviction he must make an indoor odyssey from the back door of his home all the way up, one room at a time, to the marriage bedroom where his wife Hyacinth (Rossellini) awaits.

The film is currently in post production. Depending on how far along they are, it may be ready for a debut at Cannes. Or so I hope.
