My spidey senses must have been working overtime on Sunday when I wrapped up our week in review with “Hope we get some additional film news next week”.  Obviously this isn’t 100% but it’s still interesting to wake up to.  According to Les Inrocks:

After dazzling in Cannes, where it won the Camera d’Or, Houda Benyamina came to the United States last week  to defend the colors of her rebellious teen movie, Divine . Invited by the Festival of the American Film Institue (AFI), stronghold of the industry and antechamber of the Oscars which is held each fall in Los Angeles, the French filmmaker has dominated the charts, leaving with two audience awards and special mention of the jury for the actress Oulaya Amamra.

But Houda Benyamina, unknown and under the radar eight months ago, hadn’t only come to Los Angeles to ensure after-sales of her film. Now represented by an American agent, she also actively started preparing for her next feature film and provided the first details. It will be a costume drama, set in a time of war, which tells a love story ” lyrical and burning”  between a French and a young American. embody the latter, the director of 36 years has already met several actors, including James Franco and Robert Pattinson, who have expressed interest in the project. “Casting ahead but we’re still at the stage of meetings, discussions, “ says Huda Benyamina, who says she wants to remain faithful to the methods of intense shooting of guerrilla warfare proven in Divine.

While waiting until her casting becomes clearer, the new film by Houda Benyamina, will be produced by the French company behind Divine, Easy Tiger, and should gradually reveal its ambitious current promises in 2017.

Move over Franco – you can’t have it all lol. Also, for those interested, there’s nothing in her “projects in development” on IMDbPro yet, but I’ll keep an eye on it.

Thanks Posh for the heads up.

You are currently writing. Can you tell us a little bit more?

I could do great things with Robert Pattinson

It will be a great love story, told over 30 years, on a political background. A film about freedom and betrayal. It will not be turned in the suburbs (laughs, Ed). Oulaya, my sister, is already in casting and the main actor will be American. My agent across the Atlantic asked me what profile I wanted to turn to and I told him about Robert Pattinson.

Robert Pattinson ?!
This guy has a crazy potential! It has a very animal side, it has a truly rich interiority. The problem is that despite him still riding the wave of Twilight.But I really think it’s an actor in the making. There’s a lot to pick up at home. It has not exploded yet. I think we could do great things together.
