A biopic about Dutch painter Van Gogh‘s tumultuous life and mysterious death entitled Loving Vincent is currently in the works, according to The Huffington Post.
The film will be made entirely of animated paintings in the swirling style of van Gogh’s canvases. To be co-directed by Polish painter Dorota Kobiela and filmmaker Hugh Welchman, Loving Vincent will be told entirely through the images and characters he brought to life.
More than 120 of the painter’s iconic paintings have been fixed into the narrative and the plot was woven together from 800 letters written by the artist himself, and features dramatic reconstructions of the events leading to his death.
Loving Vincent is currently recruiting painters to train in van Gogh’s style and contribute to the epic vision. Those selected will train and work at the the film’s studio in Gdansk, Poland, until August 2016.
