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.
