It's been a while since we've talked about Laurent Cantet's "Foxfire," and well, that's because there hasn't been much to talk about. While the movie marks the director's followup to his Palme d'Or-winning "The Class," when it premiered last year at TIFF, it didn't make much noise, and as far as we know, it's still without any U.S. distribution. But the movie has already opened across the pond, and as such, two clips from the movie have arrived.

Before J.C. Chandor could fully soak in the experience of premiering his sophomore feature “All is Lost” at Cannes this week -- which was met with rapturous praise (read our review here) -- he had already lined up his next project, and it's slated to shoot later this year. His third feature, A Most Violent Year,” is planning to cast a bunch of big names, but none of them have been revealed as of yet. Given the buzz for 'Lost,' however, names may not be so difficult to come by. Plot details are being kept under wraps but considering how well he handled an ensemble cast with his debut film, “Margin Call,” it should be fun to see him working with another top notch cast.
