Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #79. Anders Morgenthaler’s I’m Here

I’m Here

Director: Anders Morgenthaler
Writer: Anders Morgenthaler
Producers: Marie Gade Denessen, Julie Lind-Holm
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
Cast: Kim Basinger, Jordan Prentice, Peter Stormare

While his 2006 film, Princess, starring Thure Lindhardt, received a great deal of attention after premiering in the Director’s Fortnight sidebar at Cannes, Anders Morgenthaler’s 2007 sophomore feature, Echo (with Kim Bodnia) never received theatrical release outside of Denmark. After working in television since then, he’s completed his third film feature, dealing with infant prostitution in Eastern Europe. And starring Kim Basinger. Come now, that sounds absolutely delectable. While the original title, Petit was preferable to the generic sounding I’m Here, this sounds like an excellent offbeat showcase for the beautiful Basinger, and we see Peter Stormare is once again part of Morgenthaler’s cast. This could go either way, but it’s definitely a project high on our radar.

Gist: An infertile woman looking to adopt a child delves into the world of infant prostitution in Eastern Europe.

Release Date: A Cannes Side bar might be a good bet, perhaps another slot in Director’s Fortnight for Morgethaler.
