"Sils Maria" will come from a script written by Assayas, which he based on a Binoche-like character -- a middle-aged actress obsessed with examining her past choices and questioning what she has accomplished. Wasikowska will play Binoche’s assistant.
No shoot date yet -- presumably Binoche will have to finish stomping around the set of "Godzilla" -- but this looks like another promising, unique, character driven piece from Assayas. And yeah, we'll be looking for this at Cannes in 2014. [Deadline]
