I tweeted about this earlier this morning.  Here’s a little more information. It’s good to see this film gaining more financial support.

From Arte France:

“The selection committee of ARTE France Cinema, held November 27, 2015, decided to support three new projects: “High Life” by Claire Denis, “A Gentle Creature” by Sergei Loznitsa”

The press release:

“HIGH LIFE (TITRE PROVISOIRE) DE CLAIRE DENIS ALCATRAZ FILMS (FRANCE), PANDORA FILM (ALLEMAGNE), APOCALYPSE FILM (GRANDE-BRETAGNE) Premier long métrage en anglais de Claire Denis, High Life est un projet ambitieux de science-fiction relatant l’odyssée d’un équipage au-delà de notre système solaire. Robert Pattinson, Patricia Arquette et Mia Goth (révélée dans Nymphomaniac Volume II de Lars von Trier) feront partie de l’expédition. Le scénario est cosigné par Claire Denis et par son scénariste habituel Jean-Paul Fargeau, avec la collaboration du couple de romanciers anglais Zadie Smith et Nick Laird. Le projet bénéficie également de la participation de l’astrophysicien Aurélien Barrau, et de l’artiste contemporain danois Olafur Eliasson. Suart Staples et The Tindersticks composeront la musique originale. “

Google translate:

HIGH LIFE ( PROVISIONAL ) CLAIRE DENIS ALCATRAZ FILMS ( FRANCE ) , PANDORA FILM ( GERMANY ) FILM REVELATION ( GREAT BRITAIN ) First feature film in English by Claire Denis , High Life is an ambitious science fiction chronicling the odyssey of a crew beyond our solar system. Robert Pattinson, Patricia Arquette and Mia Goth ( revealed in Nymphomaniac Volume II Lars von Trier ) will be part of the expedition. the screenplay is co-written by Claire Denis and his usual screenwriter John Paul Fargeau , with the collaboration of the couple of English novelists Zadie Smith and Nick Laird . the project also benefits from the participation of the astrophysicist Aurélien Barrau , and the Danish artist Olafur Eliasson contemporary .

That’s interesting about The Tindersticks.  If you want to hear their sound visit their website here or their official Facebook.

High Life is a coproduction Alcazar Films (France), Pandora Film (Germany) and Apocalypse Films (UK).

And from Arnaud Grellier’s (media journalist with Satellifax (paid subscription)) twitter:


Translated from French by Bing

“Through its film subsidiary, will co-produce “High Life”, SF de Claire Denis film, with Robert Pattinson and Patricia Arquette”

From CineEuropa:

“The last selection committee of 2015 from Arte France Cinéma (led by Olivier Père) chose to engage in co-production and pre-sales on four projects. Among them stands High Life of Claire Denis, produced by France (Alcatraz Films) with Germany (Pandora) and the UK(Apocalypse), Wild Bunch driving international sales.

Science fiction project on the odyssey of a crew beyond our solar system (screenplay co-written by the director with his usual collaborator Jean-Pol Fargeau and torque composed by English novelists Zadie Smith and Irish Northern Nick Laird), High Life will have the casting Robert Pattinson (Cosmopolis  [+], Maps to the Stars  [+], The Childhood of a Leader  [+]), Patricia Arquette (Oscar and Golden Globe in 2015 for Best Supporting Actress for Boyhood) and Mia Goth (The Survivalist [+], Nymphomaniac – Volume 2 [+]).
