Huppert to star in ‘Captured’

Brillante Mendoza thriller set in Philippines

PARIS — Gallic thesp Isabelle Huppert (“White Material”) is set to topline in “Captured,” Brillante Mendoza’s follow up to “Lola.”

Pic centers on a French missionary in the Philippines who is kidnapped by a terrorist group along with 12 other foreigners.

The thriller is produced by Didier Costet’s shingle Swift Prods., which produced Mendoza’s last three pics, and is co-produced by Arte France.

Costet said he is looking for international partners.

It is budgeted at $3.9 million — significantly higher than Mendoza’s previous films — and will be his first time working with an international star.

Lensing will kick off on Jan. 11.

A prolific and critically acclaimed helmer, Mendoza won a director nod for “Kinatay” at Cannes in 2009, when Huppert headed the jury.

Huppert is also set to star in Tonie Marshall’s thriller “Noces de Cristal,” along with Gerard Depardieu. Set to shoot in October, pic is a remake of 1956 French suspenser “Deadlier Than the Male.”
