Following his critically acclaimed "Blue Is The Warmest Color," director Abdellatif Kechiche toyed with a few ideas for this follow-up. He talked about an extended cut of his lesbian romance film, a potential biopic of '70s porn star Marilyn Chambers, and a film about Héloïse & Abélard. But now he's decided on his next film and....it's none of those.

Abdellatif Kechiche

Following his critically acclaimed "Blue Is The Warmest Color," director Abdellatif Kechiche toyed with a few ideas for this follow-up. He talked about an extended cut of his lesbian romance film, a potential biopic of '70s porn star Marilyn Chambers, and a film about Héloïse & Abélard. But now he's decided on his next film and....it's none of those.

Figaro reports that this summer, Kechiche will get rolling on "La Blessure," based on the book "La Blessure, la vraie" by François Bégaudeau (who wrote the novel that inspired Laurent Cantet's excellent "The Class"). The film will tell the coming-of-age story of a fifteen-year-old, but unlike the book which is set in France, Kechiche will relocate the story to Tunisia, with filming to take place in North Africa. The director is already looking at casting actors aged 14-22.

With the Cannes market set to go into full swing next month, we're sure more details will come soon. And it's probably not outrageous to suggest that Kechiche might be back on the Croisette next year with the finished film, hoping to replicate the success of 'Warmest.'
