Sabine Azema, Anne Cosigny, Lambert Wilson, Claude Rich Also On Board Clint Eastwood may have hit 80 this year, but he's positively youthful compared to veteran French director Alain Resnais, who'll turn 89 next June. With a directorial career stretching back to 1936, and taking in stone-cold classics like "Hiroshima Mon Amour" and "Last Year in Marienbad," it's a feat that he's still up and about, let alone prepping another directorial feature.

Sabine Azema, Anne Cosigny, Lambert Wilson, Claude Rich Also On Board



Clint Eastwood may have hit 80 this year, but he's positively youthful compared to veteran French director Alain Resnais, who'll turn 89 next June. With a directorial career stretching back to 1936, and taking in stone-cold classics like "Hiroshima Mon Amour" and "Last Year in Marienbad," it's a feat that he's still up and about, let alone prepping another directorial feature.

But that's exactly what Resnais is doing, with "Vous N'avez Encore Rien Vu," his follow up to last year's "Wild Grass," which will start shooting in January. Ion Cinema have the first casting details on the project, and it looks to include several of the director's favorites. André Dussollier, Sabine Azéma (Resnais' wife), Mathieu Amalric and Anne Consigny, all veterans of "Wild Grass," are on board, as well as Pierre Arditi, Lambert Wilson and Claude Rich, who featured in the helmer's work before that, the top-notch Alan Ayckbourn adaptation "Private Fears in Public Places."

In addition, Jean-Pierre Bacri, who wrote and starred in Resnais' 1997 film "Same Old Song," and Isabelle Nanty ("Amelie"), who last worked with the director in 2003's "Not On The Lips," are also among the cast. There's no word, as yet, on the exact roles the each actor will be playing, but it's an impressive line-up, and a testament to the respect with which the director is treated.

The project (which roughly, and appropriately, translates as "You Haven't Seen Anything Yet"), is set to be a retelling of the myth of Orpheus & Eurydice, and more specifically Jean Anouilh's play "Eurydice," which recasts the bard and his love as a violinist and an actress in a group of touring performers. Resnais has co-written the script with Laurent Herbiet, who also wrote "Wild Grass" with the director.

While it's a familiar story (told perhaps most compellingly on film by Jean Cocteau in 1949's "Orphée"), Anouilh's play has never been adapted, and, considering how strong "Wild Grass" was, we're more than confident that Resnais can bring something fresh to the table, particularly with a cast like this one. It's likely to hit cinemas in France, and hopefully the festival circuit (Venice maybe?), before the end of next year, but it's unlikely to make it to US theaters until 2012. Until then, you can whet your appetite with Nick Cave's "The Lyre of Orpheus" below, a piece of music extremely unlikely to make it into Resnais' film...
