The Adam Driver-starrer ANNETTE, Leos Caraxs long-gestating English-language romantic musical, is being revived.
Charles Gillibert's CG Cinema, whose credits include Kristen Stewart-starrer PERSONAL SHOPPER, has come on board to help revive the on-again-off-again project, which will start shooting in mid-August, reports variety.com.
Amazon will release the film in the US.
Tracing the rise and fall of two star-crossed Hollywood lovers and the exceptional destiny of their daughter, ANNETTE will bring together the rock band Sparks, which is composing original songs, and celebrated music producer Marius de Vries, who is known for his work on LA LA LAND, MOULIN ROUGE and CATS.
Over the course of his 30-year career, Carax has garnered just a few directing credits, though his films have won attention for their artistic flair, including BOY MEETS GIRL, MAUVAIS SANG, LES AMANTS DU PONT NEUF and HOLY MOTORS.
A passion project for Carax, ANNETTE was first announced in 2016 with another French producer but failed to get off the ground as the financing was not in place. [IANS]
