The Other Side Of The Wind, Finally

It's been 35 years, but it looks as if Orson Welles' final, unfinished film, The Other Side of the Wind is going to be completed, and by director Peter Bogdanovich. Welles completed the majority of principal photography on the film, but was never able to finish editing it due to problems with financing. Welles supposedly left editing notes for the film, which Bogdanovich will presumably follow as closely as possible. Here is an interesting article detailing Bogdanovich's thoughts on the film, which coincidentally, he acted in. Let's all hope that this actually comes to pass. The prospect of a new Welles film already has me salivating.
