Crispin Glover: Everything is fine
What can you tell us about the third film in the trilogy?
I should not go in to detail for IT IS MINE yet and I will not shoot that next. There are other projects outside of the trilogy that I will shoot next. The Czech Republic is another culture and another language and I need to build up to complex productions like What is it? and the existing sequel It is fine! EVERYTHING IS FINE, IT IS MINE is an even more complex project than those two films were, so it will be a while yet for that production. I will step outside of the trilogy for a number of films that deal with different thematic elements.
Ultimately, is there a certain message within the "It" trilogy, or is it more important to open a social discourse?
Yes the themes of the "IT" trilogy are specific and I look forward to my next project which will step outside those themes. I have been working on the "IT" trilogy starting in 1996 so I am very much looking forward to stepping outside of those themes in my next films.
Do you have plans to extend the screenings further into 2012?
Yes! Immediately coming next will be:
- January 13 & 14 Chicago IL at The Music Box Theatre

The best way for people to know where my shows will be as I continue to tour is signing up for the newsletter on CrispinGlover.com or if they do not want so many e-mails the information is on facebook.com/OfficialCrispinHellionGlover and CrispinGlover on Twitter.
What other projects are you working on at the moment?
The sets for my next film productions have started construction. At the same time the sets are being built I am in the process of continuing to develop the screenplay for myself and my father to act in together on these very sets. He is also an actor, and that is the next film I am planning to make as a director/producer. This will be the first role I write for myself to act in that will be written as an acting role as opposed to a role that was written for the character I play to merely serve the structure. But even still, on some level I am writing the screenplay to be something that I can afford to make. There are two other projects I am currently developing to shoot on sets at my property in the Czech Republic. The cost of the set building will determine which one I actually shoot next. They will all be relatively affordable yet still cinematically pleasing.
Is there anything else you'd like to share with our readers?
I look forward to seeing you at the shows!
