Things are looking up for Jesse Eisenberg. Last week saw “The Social Network” star cast as Lex Luthor in Zack Snyder’s increasingly odd “Batman Vs. Superman”—or whatever it ends up being called—and this week sees one of his projects come back from the dead.

Late last summer, we found out Joachim Trier’s English-language follow-up to “Oslo, August 31st”—which would have not only starred Eisenberg, but also Isabelle Huppert and Gabriel Bryne—would never make it in front of cameras due to being unable to raise the $6.6 million budget needed to shoot the movie. Thankfully, fortune has smiled upon us and the Franco-German TV network Arte has decided, per Cineuropa, to back Trier’s “Louder Than Bombs” under their cinematic branch, Arte France Cinema.

The cast will remain the same for the Trier and Eskil Vogt-scripted drama that will revolve around a late war photographer played by Huppert, whose husband and two sons discover a secret about her past as a retrospective of her work is being put together. Interestingly, the film has been described as having a “Rashomon”-style plot conceit. We’re big fans of Trier and can’t wait to see how it all comes together. “Louder Than Bombs” is set to shoot this fall.
