Hot Tub Time Machine: Brizé’s Begins Production on “Hors saison” with Canet & Rohrwacher

Stéphane Brizé is set to begin production in Brittany this month. Our friends at Cineuropa confirmed that Guillaume Canet and Alba Rohrwacher are indeed toplining a project about paths crossing once again. Titled Hors saison, Brizé co-wrote the project with Marie Drucker (Léa Drucker’s cousin) who appeared in Brizé’s 2021’s Un autre monde.

Hors saison revolves around Laurent, a well-known actor nearing fifty, and Hélène, a forty-something piano teacher. He lives in Paris, she in a small seaside town. They were in love fifteen or so years ago, then they separated. Time went by, and each of them followed their own path, wounds healed, and their anger dissipated. But when Laurent tries to melt away his melancholy in a jacuzzi at a spa, he randomly bumps into Hélène…

The project that will likely be line-up for 2024 release (thought a Venice showing would not be impossible), this is produced by Gaumont’s Sidonie Dumas.
