French director Mia Hansen-Love ("Goodbye, First Love," "The Father of My Children") is currently at work on her next project, "Eden," which centers on the electronic music craze of the early '90s.

American indie darlings Greta Gerwig ("Frances Ha") and Brady Corbet ("Simon Killer") are set to star. They join an international cast including Pauline Etienne ("The Nun"), Golfshiteh Farahani ("My Sweet Pepperland"), Vincent Lacoste ("Les beaux gosses") and Vincent Macaigne ("The Rendez-vous of Deja-vous").

According to Cineuropa, "Eden" follows teenager Paul as he runs away from home and gets swept into the burgeoning dance and garage music scene. After a few years, Paul and a friend begin to establish themselves as deejays in Paris, a move that brings both success and plenty of trouble.

Hansen-Love and her brother, Sven (who himself worked as a deejay in Paris in the '90s), co-penned the original screenplay. Hansen-Love's cinematic sensitivity for the complexities of young adulthood, and for recent period detail, seen particularly in 2012's "Goodbye, First Love," makes her a perfect fit for this material. The stellar cast only makes the project all the more enticing.

While some of the film's scenes are reportedly underway, the official production start is slated for November. 

Hansen-Love won the Cannes Un Certain Regard prize in 2009 for "The Father of My Children"; she is married to fellow French director Olivier Assayas.
