Summer Boy: Christophe Honoré Sets Up New Feature Film in Paris

We can mark down a new feature film from Christophe Honoré for the 2024 calendar as the Paris-based filmmaker is setting up shop for what will be his fifteenth feature film in just over a two-decade span. Title, plot, casting news will surely be announced in the weeks ahead but what we do know is that we are looking a six-week shoot beginning mid-August in Paris. Les Films Pelléas’ David Thion (who just won the Palme d’Or for Anatomy of a Fall) will likely return as a producer here. Coming off two-plus hour coming-of-ager TIFF-preemed Le lycéen (Winter Boy), we can expect this film to explore themes of youth, family, sexuality and everything under the human condition — and it would be timed for a possible bid for a competition slot in Cannes. Our Nicholas Bell reviewed Winter Boy back in September:

Le Lycéen (Winter Boy), unites coming-of-age tropes paralleled with loss, guilt, and sexuality through a semi-autobiographical lens in his particular talents for loquacious wisdom punctuated by observational sensibilities defining complex human relationships.
