Tracking Shot August 2009: Petits Mouchoirs, Pieds Nus and Barney’s Version

This August (2009), we are keeping tabs on: a Canadian financed pic with top tier talent, that for the next weeks becomes known as the film that the radiant Rachelle Lebevre committed to and which annoyed Summit Ent., the re-appearance of The Details (it receives a second life), three French filmmakers (Julie Bertucelli, Fabienne Berthaud) on their sophomore efforts and Guillaume Canet on pic number three and finally, master filmmaker Mike Leigh is getting set for his latest project for Focus Features.

IONCINEMA.com Tracking Shot

At the beginning of every month, IONCINEMA.com’s “Tracking Shot” features six projects that are moments away from lensing and that we feel are worth signaling out. This August (2009), we are keeping tabs on: a Canadian financed pic with top tier talent, that for the next weeks becomes known as the film that the radiant Rachelle Lebevre committed to and which annoyed Summit Ent., the re-appearance of The Details (it receives a second life), three French filmmakers (Julie Bertucelli, Fabienne Berthaud) on their sophomore efforts and Guillaume Canet on pic number three and finally, master filmmaker Mike Leigh is getting set for his latest project for Focus Features. Noteworthy films that we’ll also be keeping tabs on is the remakes for Straw Dogs and Larry Clark’s Mona Lisa (I heard that funding was a problem) and Oliver Stone’s Money Never Sleeps – the sequel to Wall Street.
