Production kicks off this week on Olivier Assayas' "Sils Maria," and joining his already starry leads—Juliette Binoche, Chloe Moretz and Kristen Stewart—is an equally impressive supporting cast. So let's get right into it.
Daniel Bruhl (the upcoming "Rush" and "The Fifth Estate"), veteran Bruno Ganz ("Downfall," "Wings Of Desire"), indie kid Brady Corbet ("Simon Killer") and U.K. thesp Tom Sturridge ("On The Road" reteam with KStew, ZOMG!) have all come on aboard the movie. The movie will tell the story an older actress (Binoche) who gets obsessed-over by a younger thesp (Moretz) taking on a role the older actress made famous. Bruhl takes the role of a theater director, with Sturridge to play Moretz's boyfriend. No word yet on the parts for Ganz and Corbet.
IFC—who have release the director's last three efforts stateside, "Summer Hours," "Carlos" and "Something In The Air"—has already snapped up the U.S. rights for the movie, which is one we're already marking down on our 2014 must see list. Production starts Thursday and carries through until October 4th, and while there's no release date yet, we'd put some pretty good odds on a Cannes Film Festival debut next spring.
