Raoul Peck Discusses Next Project After 'I Am Not Your Negro'

The Oscar-nominee has ‘Young Karl Marx’ out in the fall, and says his next feature is unlikely to be a documentary.

It’s took Raoul Peck the best part of 10 years to make his last two films.

For his efforts, I am Not Your Negro earned an Oscar nomination, alongside more than 10 international awards, and soon looks set to break the box office record for Magnolia Pictures, while the biopic Young Karl Marx bowed in Berlin in February, with The Orchard lining up a fall release.

Hopefully the director’s next project won’t come with such a lengthy production schedule. 

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter in London ahead of I am Not Your Negro‘s U.K. release April 7, Peck said there were several ideas in the pipeline. 

“Some I’ve been offered to do and others that I’ve had for a long time on my list, and think those are the projects that have a good change to be made,” he said. 

While he wouldn’t reveal the subject matter, Peck said he expected his next film to be a narrative. 

“There is one potential doc but that’s too early to say. It’s good that I have the freedom to think about it,” he said, adding that he’d just spent a week pitching in LA. “I think they went well! I’ll have a job again in a few months. They didn’t kick me out!”
