The Dardenne Brothers always write and direct their films at a steady clip, often releasing their films in three- or four-year intervals. Their latest film “The Unknown Girl,” about a doctor who sets out to find the identity of an unknown young woman who died after she was refused surgery, premiered at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Now, Variety reports that Luc Dardenne says that the duo are set to make their next film, which will be about the rise of terrorism in Europe. “We are writing the script now, and hope to shoot it in Belgium by the fall of next year,” says the Dardenne brother.
Luc Dardenne is currently at the 20th Lima Film Festival as they are paying tribute to his film work. As part of the tribute, Lima is screening a section of the Dardennes’ films, including “Rosetta,” “L’Enfant,” both of which have won the Palme D’Or, their first film “La Promesse,” and Cannes 2011 Grand Prix winner “The Kid with a Bike.”
The Dardennes are currently co-producing two films: Amelie Vanelbd’s new dramedy “Drole de Pere,” which Martin Scorsese holds the distribution rights, and “Carnivore,” co-directed by Jérémie and Yannick Renier.
Their last film “Two Days, One Night” received almost universal critical acclaim. It was selection as Belgian’s submission for the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film, but was not nominated. Star Marion Cotillard received an Oscar nomination for Best Actress.
