Les Années 10

Long time actor and director Thierry de Peretti should have his highly anticipated third feature, Les Années 10 (formerly known as L’Infiltre) ready for 2020. Produced by Frederic Jouve, Peretti has amassed Pio Marmaï, Mathieu Kassovitz, Valeria Bruni Tedeschi and Alexis Manenti (co-writer and supporting actor in Cannes breakout Les Miserables, 2019) for his latest feature. His first feature, Les Apaches premiered in Directors’ Fortnight at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, and his 2017 sophomore feature A Violent Life received a Special Screening at Cannes.

Gist: Based on L’infiltré: De la traque du Chapo Guzman au scandale français des stups by Hubert Avoine and Emmanuel Fansten, initial reports of the film’s plotline about a scandal involving a whistleblower working in conjunction with a journalist to unveil corruption in the French police force in the 2010s is apparently not quite correct and new details about the film’s narrative have not been disclosed. The script is co-written by Jeanne Aptekman (Close Enemies, 2018).

Release Date/Prediction: Filming commenced in September and will continue through January 2020. We anticipate Thierry de Peretti will be returning to Cannes, potentially in Directors’ Fortnight.
