Short of also nabbing Anna Karina or Juliette Binoche — maybe Julie Delpy, if we’re going for a different three-person deal; I’m sorry, for this is already so hilariously off-course — I think this is about as good a small-scale collection of French actresses one movie could aim for. We speak of Three Hearts, reported by Allocine (via ThePlaylist) to be a Franco-centric (Franco as in French, not A-leen) drama which will see Léa Seydoux, Catherine Deneuve, and Charlotte Gainsbourg intermingle as a mother-daughters set for helmer Benoît Jacquot (most recently of Seydoux‘s Farewell, My Queen).
Great, right? The only downside to this story — not actual production, unless we’re out-and-out jerks — is that none of Three Hearts‘ plot has been divulged herein. With the inclusion of Man Bites Dog actor Benoît Poelvoorde, ThePlaylist speculate that Jacquot and Julien Boivent‘s screenplay might have Seydoux and Gainsbourg‘s sibling relationship be torn apart by a man — a logline that I can jibe with, though not something it’d be wise to get attached to. Right now, though, a summer start is being eyed, so the information will come soon enough.
Does Three Hearts earn attention with this first announcement?
