Arte France Cinéma Gets Behind Jonathan Millet, Francesca Comencini & Larrieu Bros.

Arte France Cinéma have come onboard in a co-producer capacity for upcoming projects by Jonathan Millet, veteran Italian filmmaker Francesca Comencini and the Larrieu Bros. All of these projects should premiere on the film fest circuit in 2024.

Arnaud Larrieu and Jean-Marie Larrieu are working on a book to film project titled Le roman de Jim. A 25 year spanning film, production has already begun with the likes of Sara Forestier, Bertrand Belin, Karim Leklou and Sara Giraudeau. Millet’s Les Fantômes (which we reported on back in November) will be the first film to move into production – and it has actors Adam Bessa and Tawfeek Barhom signed on for a July to September film production. Comencini’s Prima la vita, poi il cinema (which stars Romana Maggiora Vergano, Fabrizio Giffuni, Leonardo Giuliani and Amerigo Cornacchione) will move out of the gate in August (until October) with Les films du Worso’s Sylvie Pialat and Kavac Film backing a project about set in 1970’s Italy that is biographical in nature – looks at past of Francesca and that of her father Luigi.
