Laurent Cantet To Helm Cuban-Set “Itaca”

French director Laurent Cantet (“The Class”) is set to direct the Spanish-language, Cuban-set drama “Vuelta a Itaca” for Full House.

Set on a rooftop terrace in present-day Havana, the story follows Amadeo who returns after a 16-year exile. Over one night, he and his childhood friends retrace their lives.

Cantet and Cuban novelist Leonardo Padura co-wrote the script, while Didar Domehri, Gael Nouaille and Laurent Baudens will produce. Shooting aims to begin later this year.
