I’m Not There: Quentin Dupieux Enlists Collective for “Daaaaaali !”

I’m Not There: Quentin Dupieux Enlists Collective for “Daaaaaali !”

Anaïs Demoustier, Gilles Lellouche, Pierre Niney, Alain Chabat, Edouard Baer, Pio Marmaï, Jonathan Cohen, Hakim Jemili, Agnès Hurstel, Jérôme Niel, Marc Fraize, Didier Flamand and a rumored Jean Dujardin and Louis Garrel are part of the massive ensemble for Quentin Dupieux‘s next film currently in production. The oddly titled (yes there is a space here) Daaaaaali ! is, according to Deadline, going to shoot into early 2023 in Paris, the South of France and Spain. Atelier de Production’s Thomas Verhaeghe will produce. As for a film festival premiere we know not to bet against a possible Cannes showing — but Venice feels like a safer bet. As we recall, this year Dupieux premiered films in Berlin (Incredible But True) and Cannes (Smoking Causes Coughing).

This charts the story of a French journalist who meets iconic, Surrealist artist Salvador Dali on a number of occasions for a documentary project which never gets off the ground. Dali will be played by multiple different actors across the course of the film.
