Lordy lordy can we get any more excited for this film – I think the answer is yes.  Thanks to Screendaily we have even more information about the plot.  I’ll put the info after the cut in case you don’t want spoilers.

From The Playlist:

“Meanwhile, the talent on the film expands well beyond the director, writers, and cast. Cinematographer Agnès Godard is lensing, Tindersticks frontmanStuart Staples is providing the music and sound design, Leos Carax‘s editor Nelly Quettier is on board, and so too is physicist, black-hole expert, and the film’s scientific advisor Aurélien Barrau.

Production on “High Life” begins this summer, so we probably won’t be seeing this until 2017. But it already sounds like it will be worth the wait.”

From The Filmstage:

” When speaking at SUNY Purchase this fall, Smith downplayed the extent of her involvement — indicating it was in fact for the purposes of polishing English dialogue — and one wonders if and how that affects things up to this point in time. No matter the situation on that front, High Life can’t come soon enough. Let’s count our lucky stars that production is expected to begin this summer.”

‘High Life’ script available 

The company will also officially kick off sales of Claire Denis’s upcoming English-language, sci-fi film High Life – starring Robert Pattinson, Patricia Arquette and Mia Goth – about a group of convicts duped into joining a difficult space mission in the belief they will be freed if they are successful.

“The authorities have no intention of ever letting them return to earth. They want the inmates to procreate and raise a child in space as part of a larger experiment,” explained Maraval. 

The film follows the character of Monte a few years after the mission’s launch as he raises his daughter, Willow, in complete isolation on the empty spacecraft as it heads towards its final destination, a black hole.

He fathered Willow against his will after his sperm was used to inseminate another convict in space as part of the experiment. In the process of raising her, however, he comes to experience real love for the first time in his life.

The screenplay by Claire Denis, long-time collaborator Jean-Pol Fargeau and acquisitions agent Geoff Cox, who recently took a collaborative writing credit on Lucile Hadžihalilović’s Evolution, will be available at the EFM.

As previously announced, the filmmaker is re-teaming with cinematographer Agnes Godard, as well as Stuart Staples and the Tindersticks for the original music and sound design. Long-time Leon Carax editor Nelly Quettier has also boarded the project. French physicist and black hole expert Aurelien Barrau has been drafted in as a scientific advisor. 

Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson, known for his Tate Modern installation The Weather Project is the artistic director. Paris-based company BUF, which recently worked on The Transporter RefuelledLove and The Lobster, is handling the special effects. 

“It will be Olafur Eliasson’s first cinematic experience. He will be overseeing the design of the spacecraft which is really important for the film,” said Maraval.

The €8m production – produced by French Alcatraz Films, Germany’s Pandora Film and The Apocalypse Films Company in the UK – is due to shoot this summer in Germany.”
