Can’t Keep Quiet: Joachim Lafosse Casts Emmanuelle Devos & Benoît Poelvoorde for “Un silence”

Belgian filmmaker Joachim Lafosse is wasting little time between projects and will be teaming with veterans thesps Emmanuelle Devos and Benoît Poelvoorde for his tenth feature film titled, Un silence. An August or September start date is expected and we can already include this project as a possible 2023 Cannes showing seeing that The Restless (Intranquilles) which stars Leïla Bekhti and Damien Bonnard was selected for last year’s comp. Lafosse was developing a project called Le Fils de la Loi which is topically related to Belgium’s recent history – but we have no clue whether this project is one of the same. Look for more casting news from the Les Films du Losange production. Devos and Poelvoorde previously co-starred in Anne Fontaine’s Coco Avant Chanel.
