Anatomy of the Future: Arthur Harari to Direct Léa Seydoux in Sci-fi Project

Adding to a string (Crimes of the Future and The Beast) of recent sci-fi-based roles, actress Léa Seydoux is tipped to join Onoda: 10,000 Nights in the Jungle director Arthur Harari‘s third feature film – the news comes by a Liberation profile (via World of Reel). Harari is riding the wave of Palme d’Or success of Anatomy of a Fall which he co-wrote with wife Justine Triet (he also has a supporting part) will likely still be mounting the project into the new year but clearly we’ll get a female perspective.

Harari is also coming off the success of Onoda: 10,000 Nights – the sophomore film landed the Un Certain Regard section opening slot and picked up several accolades along the way. If it’s a doozy of a based on true events anti-war film.
