Deep Trails: Jonathan Millet Tracing Roadmap for “Les Fantômes”

Deep Trails: Jonathan Millet Tracing Roadmap for “Les Fantômes”

We are in the midst of getting ready for the offerings for 2023 and it’s usually around the fourth quarter of each and every year we get to eavesdrop on offerings more than the full year ahead and one item that is a curiosity piece (and supported with some CNC coin) is the debut feature by Jonathan Millet. Cineuropa reports that the four projects have been selected during the third 2022 session of the first advance on receipts committee include Julien Menanteau’s Lads, Marie-Hélène Roux’s Muganga, Marco Nguyen and Nicolas Athané’s Jim Queen and Les Fantômes – Millet’s debut is set to move into production in April 2023. Expect possible casting news early next year.

Produced by Films Grand Huit’s Pauline Seigland and Lionel Massol (they have Disco Boy ready for 2023), Les Fantômes is written by Millet and by Florence Rochat and this centres on Hamid, who is part of a group of Syrian citizens scouring Europe in search of fleeing regime officials. Hamid follows the trail of Harfaz, his former torturer, alone in Strasbourg. His quest will plunge him back into his deepest wounds. Mk2 Films handle sales.
