Your Room or Mine?: Neon Books Flight with Audrey Diwan’s “Emmanuelle”

Your Room or Mine?: Neon Books Flight with Audrey Diwan’s “Emmanuelle”

Yesterday we read the Neon folks were “circling” and that morphed into “buying” the North American rights to the highly anticipated third feature film by Golden Lion winner Audrey Diwan. While the old idea of Emmanuelle might need no introduction, suffice to say we can’t wait to see what the Diwan and Rebecca Zlotowski co-written project will look like. The looming question at this juncture is whether Cannes has any possibility of securing a finished film for its invite. Our inclination is that this is likely heading to Venice.

Production began in September in Paris before moving to Tokyo – where the film will be completed in December. Noémie Merlant toplines the film and we are still waiting to see who some of the other cast are. Anamaria Vartolomei who toplined Diwan’s Happening might be cast in a smaller part.
