The film will play Robert Pattinson ( “Twilight” , “Cosmopolis” ), Academy Award winner Patricia Arquette ( “Boyhood” ), Mia Goth ( “Your Company”) and Lars Eidinger . Photos will be completed by Agnes Godard ( “The Dreamlife of Angels” ), Stuart Staples with British music group Tindersticks compose music for the film.

Currently, talks about the involvement in the project Polish artists. The search for objects shooting in Poland supports the Film Commission Poland. “High Life” will be co-produced by France (Alcatraz Films, winner of the Palme d’Or for his film “The Life of Adele” , directed by Abdellatif Kechiche ), Germany (Pandora Film, m.

Film Commission Poland has posted the same extract as above.

Film.Onet:  High Life ” created in English. The film‘s budget is 33 million, of which 1.5 million will come from the Polish Film Institute. The premiere is scheduled for 2017.”

Filmstart: “On the Polish side for the production of arm  Madants Ltd. will be responsible Klaudia Śmieja , which was also co-producer of the current winter in cinemas image of Anne Fontaine, “Innocent.”

Remember we posted about Madants and Klaudia Smieja a few weeks ago here.

UPDATE: 18 June 2016

From Film New Europe:

WARSAW: High Life, the first English-language film from Palm D’Or winner Claire Denis, has received 1.5 m PLN from the Polish Film Institute. The film will be a coproduction between France, Germany, UK and Poland.

The film is a coproduction between France (Alcatraz Films), Germany (Pandora Film), UK (Apocalypse Films) and Poland (Madants).

“I’ve been an admirer of her work for years and when I read about her upcoming project last year in Cannes I immediately contacted all the producers involved in the project offering my assistance. I was ready to make coffee on set,” Klaudia Śmieja of Madants, this year’s Cannes Producer on the Move, told FNE in an exclusive interview. [Maria: Link to Klaudia’s interview is above]

The budget of the film is 7.2 m EUR. The film will be shot at several locations including some in Poland. Film Commission Poland is assisting the producers with location scouting.

Hmmm there’s a discrepancy about the budget – I’m more inclined to think it will be 7.2 m rather than 33 m, it had been reported earlier that the production cost would be 8 million Euro
