Netflix to Finish Orson Welles’ The Other Side of the Wind

One of the great unfinished movies of all-time is Orson Welles’ The Other Side of the Wind, which was filmed between 1970 and 1976, but never had the finances for post-productions. Welles was the director, co-writer and co-producer of this Hollywood satire. Over the years, select scenes have seen the light of day in documentaries and whatnot, but it’s never been officially completed or released. There had been various attempts to get it finished, including some crowdfunding campaigns. 

Super exciting news for film geeks like me today: producers Frank Marshall and Filip Jan Rymsza will oversee the completion thanks to Netflix!
