NEW KEN BURNS FILM GETS TITLE: THE NEXT WAR

NEW KEN BURNS FILM GETS TITLE: THE NEXT WAR

HOLLYWOOD – Ken Burns’ new film will be called The Next War.

A new documentary from award winning filmmakers Ken Burns and Lynn Novick are working on a new PBS documentary called The Next War.

Speaking EXCLUSIVELY with the Studio Exec, Ken Burns said:

We were originally going to take a break. The Vietnam War was over a decade in the making and we were exhausted. But we also watched the news and it became apparent that the lessons we hoped had been learnt in Vietnam wouldn’t be forgotten. Unfortunately, that isn’t the case.

The new film – The Next War – charts the coming war between North Korea, South Korea and the United States of America. China will feature in a future episode with Japan, Russia and the European Union also included in the treatment. The first week long episode charts the build up to war. As with previous Burns films, The Next War features a series of interviews as well as archive footage which is yet to be filmed.

This is the first time we’ve done a film about a war that hasn’t yet started. There’s a chance that events might change our project. We’d love it if the film was cancelled. But it looks like it’s going ahead.

The Last War will be on PBS in 2019.

    After the election I started a betting pool as to when & where we’d get into war. I drew Canada/2018, and it still seems like a pretty good prospect to me.
