The lead roles have been entrusted to Adam Driver and Marion Cotillard. The film is being produced by CG Cinéma (France), and is being co-produced in Belgium by Scope Pictures and Wrong Men.
Screen Flanders is also backing the horror flick The Deep House by genre veterans Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury, which follows a couple of photojournalists who decide to explore a submerged haunted house in the Pyrenees and attempt to reawaken the spirit residing within it. The Radar Films (France) production is being staged in Belgium by Umedia.
Three Belgian movies are receiving support: Ritueel by Hans Herbots (The Treatment [+lee también:

Lastly, Screen Flanders will also be backing an animated feature by Iranian director Sepideh Farsi, The Siren. The film is set in 1980, in Abadan, the oil capital of Iran, as its residents hold out against the Iraqi siege. Here, a teenage boy and his grandfather attempt to save their loved ones on board an abandoned ship. Produced by French outfit Les Films d’Ici, the film is being co-produced in Belgium by Lunanime (see the article).
