Francois Ozon is shooting “Madeleine” with Isabelle Huppert, Dany Boon

Francois Ozon, who opened the Berlinale with his latest film “Peter von Kant”, is already shooting his next film “Madeleine” with a flood of stars such as Isabelle Huppert, Dany Boon and Fabrice Luchini.

The project, hailed as his most ambitious since 8 Women, is being introduced to buyers by Playtime in Cannes and has already generated a lot of interest. The plot is being kept under wraps, but Playtime is presenting the script to select buyers.

Ozon is one of the few bankable European directors whose films have screened at major festivals and have traditionally sold around the world, including in the US

Madeleine reunites Ozon with his regular producers Eric and Nicolas Altmayer at Mandarin Cinema. Gaumont will distribute the film in France.

Also joining the cast is Rebecca Marder, the rising French star in Arnaud Desplechin’s Tromperie and Sandrine Kiberlain’s Une jeune fille qui va bien.

“Madeleine” brings Ozon back together with Huppert 20 years after “8 Women”, the musical mystery romance which, along with “Swimming Pool”, is one of Ozon’s best-known films. However, it is Ozone’s first time collaborating with Boon, a French comedy company usually featured in mainstream films rather than auteur films. Boon recently wrapped filming on Netflix’s Murder Mystery 2, starring Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler.

Ozone was in competition at Cannes last year with Everything Went Fine, starring Sophie Marceau. Among his notable recent works is By the Grace of God, a searing psychological drama based on a real-life abuse scandal involving a French priest.
