Guilt Complex: Léa Drucker Toplines Catherine Breillat’s “L’été dernier”

Finally it will be Léa Drucker in the driver’s seat (and not the originally attached Valeria Bruni Tedeschi) in Catherine Breillat‘s now titled L’été dernier (which translates as Last Summer). Drucker, who will next be seen in Cannes Comp selected Lukas Dhont’s Close, is surrounded by thesps Olivier Rabourdin and Clotilde Cournau – both have remained on the project since the first announcements were made last year when the project was floating around as “Inavouable.” We expect there to be one more casting announcement for the lead antagonist – if you want to call it that in the film. SBS Productions’ Saïd Ben Saïd confirmed via the social medias that production begins next month. It’ll have been a decade since Abuse of Weakness (read review). This is a remake of May el-Toukhy’s Queen of Hearts – essentially Drucker is playing the part that Trine Dyrholm took on. Look for this to possibly shake up the Croisette in 2023.
