I've checked this profile https://www.imdb.com/name/nm8306570/ and I'm almost sure this is just a guy with a couple of friends that have made some fake interviews about upcoming films plus a fake "reaharsal" video. Having uploaded to IMDB references to movies that were never made (no trailer, not published ever or released on cinema).

There are only references on a couple of websites that mostly link to IMDB. They have also a very basic website and facebook with some photoshoped images. Worth checking, seems just like a fake film director trying to get some attention. Fake movies:

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8253030/
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5902900/
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6036484/

And probably really all of his credits are fake. he also appears credited as Miscellaneous Crew on Dunkirk, I don't know how.

How did this title get in the database without an official site? I can find no Video. It has a supposed budget of 600K euros! Is written, directed, and stars E.B. only! No one has ever rated it either, or it has one vote! His!

    Disputes

    Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of any IMDb Service, or any products or services sold or distributed by IMDb or through the IMDb Services will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement.

    a. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Conditions of Use as a court would.

    b. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent Corporation Service Company, 300 Deschutes Way SW, Suite 304, Tumwater, WA 98051. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA’s rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules. We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, IMDb will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.

    c. You and IMDb each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration you and IMDb each waive any right to a jury trial. You and IMDb also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
