Unkidnapped: Blanche Gardin & Michel Houellebecq Team on Nicloux’s “Dans la peau de Blanche Houellebecq”

A distinct muse in the Guillaume Nicloux canon, author and sometimes actor Michel Houellebecq will once again become a titular member for what appears to be (at least the title confection) a Being John Malkovich inspired potential laugher. Titled Dans la peau de Blanche Houellebecq the mishmash will include actress-comedian Blanche Gardin who was a sidekick blast in Dumont’s France and one year later again on the Croisette, was in Quentin Dupieux’s Fumer fait tousser and the Critics’ Week dramedy Everybody Loves Jeanne. Production is expected to sometime next month in and around Paris.

Nicloux’s last completed fantasy film Lockdown Tower was a recent Deauville and Sitges invite and he recently completed La petite – a book to film project starring Fabrice Luchini, Mara Taquin and Maud Wyler. Before that he was working on an adaptation of Soumission with Jean-Paul Rouve – but that project appears to be on the backburner. As Nicloux fans know, Michel Houellebecq toplined Kidnapping of Michel Houellebecq (2014) and Thalasso in 2019. We don’t have the synopsis for Dans la peau de Blanche Houellebecq or prod co.
