).

Penned by the Australian film and television writer Andrew Bovell (Lantana, A Most Wanted Man [+see also:

) and adapted by Jalil Lespert and Jérémie Guez, the script sees Iris, the wife of rich banker Antoine Doriot, disappear in the middle of Paris. A young mechanic mired in debt, Max, could very well be linked to her abduction, but the investigators are not even close to finding out the truth about the events unfolding before their very eyes.

Produced by Wassim Béji for WY Productions (which has been responsible for the production of all of Jalil Lespert’s films, but also known for A Perfect Man [+see also:

), Iris is a co-production with France 2 Cinéma. The rights to the film (for which shooting began on 25 January in Paris, the Ile-de-France region and Normandy) have already been bought by Canal+ and Ciné+. It will be distributed in France from 2 November 2016 by Universal Pictures International France and will be sold internationally by TF1 International.
