Kounen To Direct Animated “Windwalkers”

Jan Kounen (“Coco Chanel and Igor Stravinsky,” “Dobermann”) is attached to direct the €18 million animated sci-fi 3D feature “Windwalkers: Chronicle of the 34th Horde” for Forge Animation says Variety.

Adapted from Alain Damasio’s bestseller “La Horde du Contrevent”, the English-language feature is set in a world buffeted by terrifying winds and follows an elite team’s attempt to reach the land of Upper Reaches, where they believe the winds are generated.

Marc Caro (“Delicatessen,” “The City of Lost Children”) is serving as vfx and art supervisor while producters are currently in talks with another screenwriter.
