The Artist Helmer Goes On A “Search”

“The Artist” director Michel Hazanavicius is set to direct a contemporary remake of Fred Zinnemann’s 1948 feature “The Search” as his next project reports Variety.

The award winning original is set just after the Second World War and followed a displaced mother on a desperate search for her young son who managed to survive being at Auschwitz.

This version will set the action in Chechnya with ‘Artist’ star Berenice Bejo already attached as the NGO employee and mother. Thomas Langmann will produce.
