Young Guns: Fanny Liatard & Jérémy Trouilh Prepping “Les Yeux Verts”

Young Guns: Fanny Liatard & Jérémy Trouilh Prepping “Les Yeux Verts”

The filmmaking duo, whose debut film Gagarine earned the Cannes Label in 2020 and found its way to cinephiles amidst the challenges of the pandemic, have been gradually crafting their next project. Fanny Liatard and Jérémy Trouilh will move into production next spring on Les Yeux Verts — it will be produced by June Films’ Naomi Denamur and Julie Billy (who just completed production on the highly anticipated feature debut by Ariane Labed). Casting is currently underway for what will be another film with young protagonists – the pre-teen and teen demo. We have no idea what the plotline is, but the project was co-written with Guillaume Laurent of Amélie and I Lost My Body fame. Les Yeux Verts is being co-developed with Haut et Court. We can mark this as a film that will be gunning for a possible Cannes 2025 premiere.

In our review for Gagarine, our Nicholas Bell called this a “well-crafted mystical odyssey both emotionally poignant and aesthetically profound, Gagarine blends the dilapidated reality of its crumbling complex with the quiet possibilities of Yuri’s space fantasies, set to a moody, atmospheric score.”
