Euro Beat: Michael Hazanavicius Works In Secret, James Marsh Takes On Stephen Hawking
The Sneaky Oscar-Winning French Director
So, what's director Michel Hazanavicius been up to since winning a ton of Oscars for The Artist? Preparing to make another movie on the downlow! Apparently, the director has already started shooting a remake of Fred Zinneman's 1948 film with Montgomery Clift The Search.
The original film concerns an American G.I. who meets a nine-year old Auschwitz survivor who fled a refugee center in post-war Germany. However, Hazanacicius' film is being described as a "free" remake, which implies that most plot bets are off. The only other confirmed information thus far is that the director's wife and star of the The Artist and The Past, Bérénice Bejo will play a lead role and that everything else is being done with the utmost secrecy.
