After our exhaustive look at the European Oscar submissions, Euro Beat is back to its normally scheduled Tuesday spot with good news about upcoming projects, bad news about Spain, Portugal and a great director and some very interesting European box office stats. Click through below to get it all!

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.

"No, not our beloved Asian Editor, but the British director responsible for films like Man on Wire"

Marsh has done a lot of great stuff that I like, Project Nim(2011) is another great doc by him.

"The filmmaker is preparing a film about the life of the famous physicist, Stephen Hawking called The Theory of Everything. Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones have signed on to star in the film, which is inspired by Jane Hawking's memoir Traveling to Infinity: My Life With Stephen."

Well, you had me at Felicity Jones.......

"It was one of the most interesting weeks in a long time at the European box office. We'll begin with France. Woody Allen often makes jokes about how much the French love his movies more than anyone else, and with completely straight faces, the country has proven him right again."

Allen and France makes sense somehow......great work, thanks Mr Clark.
