Per Film Comment, Austrian auteur Michael Haneke is gearing up to shoot his next film, "Flashmob," this summer. 

Set partly in the U.S., the story focuses on various characters who meet via the internet and, as described by Haneke, "the fragile relationship between media and reality." Somehow these characters' relationships with one another, and their digital bond, culminates in -- you guessed it -- a flashmob by the film's end.

Well, count us excited for anything the great Haneke has up his sleeve. The Playlist points out that while there's been little reporting thus far on this new project, financing began shaping up while the director was in the midst of making 2012's "Amour," which would go on to win both the Foreign Language Oscar and the Palme d'Or.

No word yet on casting. But seeing as "this summer" is practically now, actors will no doubt be assembled/announced fairly soon.
