On the official community page of the group from the Gaza Strip on VKontakte, a post appeared with the announcement of a full-length film about the life of its founder Yuri Khoy and the rise of the group itself. It was at that time that the authors of the post linked their decision to announce the future film to the premiere of the series about The King and the Jester and the growing interest of the audience in this type of project.
The director of the tape was Vladimir Shchegolkov. Among his recent works is the tragicomedy Lucky with Yevgeny Tsyganov as a taxi driver who meets unusual passengers every night. The Cerberus detective series about the search for participants in the Decembrist uprising will also be released this year.
Filming is scheduled to begin in August. The film will hit theaters next year. The names of the actors approved for the main roles have not yet been announced. Opinions from fans in the Gaza Strip regarding the upcoming film were divided. Some were very happy after the news, while others considered this idea quite dubious.
The series “The King and the Jester” even before the premiere set a record on “Kinopoisk” after more than 100 thousand users added it to the waiting list. The first two episodes became available to view on March 2. On the same day, an exhibition dedicated to the phenomenon of punk and the work of the King and the Jester, as well as the sale of merchandising, opened in Moscow.
