Neon is co-financing the international co-production. The long-gestated project revolves around the story of the last human family.
Principal photography has begun in Ireland and will continue through the spring in Italy and Germany.
“I am thrilled to be making The End in collaboration with this miraculous ensemble of artists. I am in awe of each of them. It has been a journey of six years to reach this point, and I could not be more humbled,” said Oppenheimer.
