While we anxiously await Xavier Dolan‘s next film, the already wrapped “It’s Only The End Of The World” starring Marion Cotillard, Léa Seydoux, and Vincent Cassel, the filmmaker continues to keep himself busy. He was recently behind the camera for Adele‘s “Hello,” and in case you forgot, he’s got another movie that’s been brewing for a while, and now it’s gearing up to get in front of cameras next spring.
Entertainment One’s Seville International, Les Films Séville, Lyla Films and Sons of Manual have announced this morning that “The Death and Life of John F. Donovan” starring Jessica Chastain and Kit Harington will roll in 2016. Susan Sarandon and Kathy Bates have also joined the film which follows a young actor, 10 years after the death of an American TV star he corresponded with as a teenager, who recollects the pen-pal relationship he used to have with his past idol. The film explores the hardships of fame and hurdles of the movie business through the lives of both, now and then, and reflects on the issue of identity and diversity in Hollywood over the past decade.

Can’t wait to see how this one turns out, and as for ‘End Of The World,’ I’d put good money on Cannes premiere next spring.
