3rd Time a Charm for Haneke and Huppert

Michael Haneke is returning to the “aging” project he had begun scripting before The White Ribbon.

Michael Haneke is returning to the “aging” project he had begun scripting before The White Ribbon. French sources say that he’ll be re-teaming with Isabelle Huppert and has set Jean-Louis Trintignant in the lead role of a man dealing with the notion of a deteriorating, aging body but a youthful mind.
