Depardieu, Binoche Join “Dark Glasses”

French acting legends Gerard Depardieu and Juliette Binoche are finally set to team up on screen in the new feature “Dark Glasses” from filmmaker Claire Denis.

France 3 (via The Playlist) reports that Depardieu and Binoche will be joined by Xavier Beauvois in the project which will start a seven week shoot this month and is targeting a late 2017 release.

Based on the book “A Lover’s Discourse” by Roland Barthes, the property deals with romance from a lover’s point of view and was previously adapted into a 2010 Hong Kong anthology film.

This project seems to have taken precedence over Denis’ in development sci-fi movie “High Life” starring Robert Pattinson, Patricia Arquette, and Mia Goth which was supposed to shoot this Spring.
