Murder Anyone? François Ozon’s Period Picture “Madeleine” Set for 2023 Release
Isabelle Huppert, Dany Boon, Fabrice Luchini, André Dussollier with young theps Rebecca Marder and Nadia Tereszkiewicz (who is coming from a Cannes Film Fest premiere of a sparkling performance in Les amandiers) are expected to be the main sextet to appear in almost a film per year pace filmmaker François Ozon new project. Production began in the month of April and just concluded. Sales on Madeleine were launched in Cannes but we didn’t get anything in terms of the plot (the Cineuropa folks took an informed guess of what the project might be about) but we do know that Ozon written project is set in the 30’s, would have been shot in Paris, outside Paris and in Belgium. Mandarin’s Éric and Nicolas Altmayer produced the film and Manuel Dacosse returns as the cinematographer on the project. This will likely be showcased in Berlinale or Cannes next year. His latest film Peter Von Kant (read review) will be released sometime this year.
