Four years on since his Oscar nominated last film “Amour,” Michael Haneke seems to have finally lined up his next feature project.
Challenges.Fr (via The Playlist) reports that Haneke will re-team with Isabelle Huppert and Jean-Louis Trintignant for his new film entitled “Happy End”. Specific are under wraps, though shooting will take place this spring in Calais.
The current migrant crisis in Europe will apparently be a part of the story, though producers insist that it will only be an element of the plot and not the main focus of the narrative.
Expect a likely Cannes 2017 bow for the film which follows in the wake of Haneke dropping his long in development project “Flashmob” this past Summer.
