Vanessa Paradis has joined the French-language romantic drama “Cafe de flore” for Item7, Monkey Pack Films and Crazyfilms says The Hollywood Reporter.
The narrative follows two different storylines – one set in the 1960s which follows the mother (Paradis) of a child with Down syndrome. The other is in the present and follows a couple.
Jean-Marc Vallee (“The Young Victoria,” “C.R.A.Z.Y.”) directs from a script he wrote and describes as an “epic love story that deals with supernatural resources”.
Pierre Even, Marie-Claude Poulin, Jean-Yves Robin, Nicolas Coppermann and Vanessa Fourgeaud will produce. Filming kicks off this Summer in Montreal and Paris.
