Last month, it was revealed that Harmony Korine was crowdsource funding his next film as part of the Rotterdam Film Festival's Cinema Reloaded program. The director was seeking 30,000 Euros for a project that he said was “gonna be some really messed up" and do "some serious damage." And it looks like he's found some very suitable collaborators.

Last month, it was revealed that Harmony Korine was crowdsource funding his next film as part of the Rotterdam Film Festival's Cinema Reloaded program. The director was seeking 30,000 Euros for a project that he said was “gonna be some really messed up" and do "some serious damage." And it looks like he's found some very suitable collaborators.

In an interview with Pitchfork, South African hip hop artists and certified eccentrics Die Antwoord have revealed that they are working with Korine on the project that will go in front of cameras very soon. "We're doing a short film in a few weeks time with Harmony Korine that will screen at the Rotterdam Film Festival this January. [Korine] wrote the script and we made it a little more Zef. It's come out fuckin' wild. It's a short film called 'Wat Kyk Jy' -- which means "watcha lookin' at?"-- which I tattooed onto my penis as well," said male half of the duo Ninja.

It certainly sounds intriguing and given both artists' unique visual sensibilities it should prove to be a pretty wild collaboration. And this isn't the first time members of the Die Antwoord have caught the attention of filmmakers. As you might recall, female half Yo-Landi Vi$$er was bandied about as a potential candidate for the role of Lisbeth Salander in David Fincher's "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" but apparently wasn't interested in the role. Die Antwoord's participation here appears to be in front of the camera, though it's unknown if they'll also contribute music as well.

The project is capping a pretty busy year for Korine. His most recent short "Act Da Fool," is currently online and he lined up his next feature, "Twinkle Twinkle" -- about a hitman who dresses up as a dollar bill -- with Marlon Wayans set to star. And if you've been wondering why Netflix hasn't been sending you Korine's last feature "Trash Humpers," recently released on DVD, it's because they've banned it.

The Rotterdam Film Festival runs from January 26th to February 6th.
