The drama, which focuses on the childhood of a post-World War I leader, is tentatively scheduled to shoot in Europe starting in May.

Corbet co-wrote the script with Mona Fastvold (director of “The Sleepwalker,” which will be competing at 2014’s Sundance Film Festival). It will be produced by Antoine and Martine de Clermont-Tonnere, Chris Coen, Amour Fou and Scope Pictures. Protagonist Pictures will handle international film sales.

Corbet, star of the indie “Simon Killer,” just wrapped roles in Noah Baumbach’s “While We’re Young,” Andrea Di Stefano’s “Paradise Lost” and Olivier Assayas’ “Sils Maria.”
