Live Reporting: Roschdy Zem Leads Correspondents in Alix Delaporte’s “Vivants”

Angel & Tony (2010) and Le dernier coup de marteau (2014) filmmaker Alix Delaporte is finally climbing back into the director’s chair for a third feature film titled, Vivants. Roschdy Zem, Alice Isaaz, Vincent Elbaz, Ludivine Sagnier and Pierre Lottin (who had a pair of Cannes preems in Les Harkis and The Night of the 12th) will topline the project with production due to begin somewhere around January and February of next year with producers probably earmarking a Lido launch as Delaporte’s first two films premiered there.

Vivants will explore the world news reporters — something that Bruno Dumont had plenty of fun with in 2021’s France. Formerly titled Gabrielle and then La Fille à la caméra, the pandemic undid the original plans to shoot in 2020 with Adèle Exarchopoulos. We imagine that Lionceau Film’s Hélène Cases would return to produce and cinematographer Claire Mathon (Saint Omer, Spencer) would reteam with the filmmaker on this third outing — we’ll be able to confirm this in the near future.
