Kassovitz Joins Haneke’s “Happy End”

Mathieu Kassovitz (“Amelie”) has joined the cast of Austrian filmmaker Michael Haneke’s next project “Happy End” for Les Films du Losange, X Filme and Wega Film.

The story follows a well-off family in northern France living in a bourgeois bubble unaware of the despair and human misery unfolding in migrant camps around the port town of Calais, a few miles from their home.

Isabelle Huppert and Jean-Louis Trintignant also star in the project which just began shooting in Nord-Pas-de-Calais ahead of a 2017 release.
