‘Valley of Love’ Helmer Sets Next Film (EXCLUSIVE)

Guillaume Nicloux, who has “Valley of Love,” above, playing in Cannes competition, will next direct “Les confins du monde,” a Indochina-war set drama partly based on Erwan Bergot’s “Commando Vandenberghe: Le Pirate du Delta.”

The project, written by Jerome Beaujour (“The Nun”) and Nicloux, reteams two of France’s most successful producers, Sylvie Pialat’s Les Films du Worso (“Timbuktu,” “Stranger by the Lake”) and Jean-Baptiste Dupont and Cyril Colbeau-Justin’s LGM Cinema (“Me, Myself and Mum”). The two outfits collaborated on Cannes’ Palme d’Or-contender “Valley of Love,” which stars Gerard Depardieu and Isabelle Huppert.

Depardieu is in negotiations to join the cast of “Confins.”

“Confins” explores the life of a military chief in the 1940s Indochina war and recounts his love affair with a Vietnamese woman.

Pialat, who also has Corneliu Porumboiu’s “Treasure” playing in Un Certain Regard, said, ” ‘Les Cofins’ is not a war movie, even though it will feature guerrilla-style war scenes, but rather an epic romance-adventure drama set against the backdrop of the war that brings some perspective into this chapter of history.”

The film will mark one of Nicloux’s most ambitious films, added Pialat.

Shooting will start in April in Cambodia.
