Amazon has scooped up the North American rights to “Holy Motors” director Leos Carax’s “Annette”. Rooney Mara, Adam Driver, and Rihanna star in Carax’s English-language debut which will also feature music by the band Sparks.
The story reportedly revolves around a stand-up comedian whose opera singer wife has died, leaving him with a two-year-old daughter who has a surprising gift.
Production begins this spring, after which Mara will likely jump to Brady Corbet’s ambitious musical “Vox Lux”. She’s currently shooting “Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot” for Gus Van Sant.
