Berlin: Bruno Dumont Set for Joan of Arc Musical Drama (EXCLUSIVE)

Bruno Dumont, whose 2013 Juliette Binoche starrer “Camille Claudel 1915” competed in Berlin, will next be directing “Jeanette,” a musical drama based on Charles Peguy’s play “Le Mystere de la charite de Jeanne d’Arc.

Produced by Jean Brehat for 3B Prods., “Jeanette” the musical will focus on the part of Peguy’s play that deals with Joan of Arc as a child, from age 8-12, when she started to embrace her sacred mission.

Arte France Cinema is co-producing. Like 2014’s “Li’l Quinquin,” Dumont’s comedy-drama TV mini-series that premiered at Cannes’ Directors’ Fortnight and sold worldwide, “Jeanette” is being produced for television but will be repped by a sales agent for theatrical distribution abroad.

“Jeanette’s” rock and techno score will be composed by Gautier Serre (aka Igorrr) and choreographed by Philippe Decoufle, whose credits include “Le Dernier Chaperon rouge” and “New Order: Substance.”

Shooting will start in August.

3B Prods. is co-owned by Rachid Bouchareb, who is presenting his latest film, “Road to Istanbul,” at the Berlin Film Festival. Sold by Elle Driver, the movie turns on a mother and her only daughter, a 20-year-old who has left Belgium to join Isis.
