The Search
Winning Best Picture and Best Director at the Oscars pretty much gives you licence to do whatever you want next time around. Looking at the follow-ups of some recent Academy Award winners, so you can see a near-three-hour erotic drama (Ang Lee), a one-man show about a man cutting off his own arm (Danny Boyle), a near-three-hour drama about the search for Osama Bin Laden (Kathryn Bigelow) and a near-three-hour musical sung live on set (Tom Hooper), films that for the most part, would have had a trickier time getting a greenlight without the ability to put “From Academy Award Winning Director…” on the poster.

The Search
While there are more than a handful of films already touted as prime Palme d'Or contenders, yet to screen is Michel Hazanavicius' "The Search." It's a big shift for the filmmaker, who is moving from the featherweight "The Artist," to an epic two-and-a-half-hour wartime drama. And the first trailer is here and it looks like very strong stuff.

The Search
With the film shooting in secret last summer and fall, director Michel Hazanavicius has been keeping a close veil over his forthcoming "The Search," slated to play in competition at the Cannes Film Festival. Now, that veil is slowly being lifted with the first official image finally arriving.

 The 2015 Best Picture Contenders, Premature pics
The star of "Ghosts Of Girlfriends Past" and the singer from 30 Seconds Of Mars are Oscar winners, "12 Years A Slave" beat "Gravity," Adele Tazeem became the most famous non-existent person on the planet, and no one's stopped talking about selfies for about 72 hours. The streets of LA are now full of discarded The Weinstein Company interns, who haven't seen daylight for months and are only capable of saying the words "Everything you are and everything you have is 'cos of that butler." Yep, the 2013/2014 awards season has come to an end.

It's been a couple of years now since French director Michel Hazanavicius took the cinematic world by storm with this silent cinema homage, "The Artist." The box office hit and critical favorite took home five Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor for Jean Dujardin and Best Score for Ludovic Bource. Not a bad boost for a filmmaker who was previously best known for his spy movie spoofs, "OSS 117." Undoubtedly, expectations are going to be sky high on whatever he's working on next, but he's found a solution to keep the noise at bay: shoot in secret.

As Harvey Weinstein crawls on hands and knees up the Croisette, searching desperately for the next film to equal the success of last year’s golden child, “The Artist,” it can be hard to recall just how unique and singular the film seemed when first shown at Cannes, before its subsequent release and obnoxious awards season buzz. The plain fact is, director Michel Hazanavicius & Co. made a tremendous film, and today news has sprung up that the cast and crew will continue to pursue interesting projects, ones that find them in a distinctly different environment than before.

When you're the helmer and star of a near-universally beloved sleeper hit, with Oscars virtually in the bag, it's one of the few scenarios (bar a billion dollar hit) which means your next project can be pretty much whatever you like. The offers roll in, of course, but you have enough kudos that you could ask for $50 million to film a biopic of Shirley Temple, starring Edward James Olmos, and someone would step up to fund it.
