), who will notably be flanked by Béatrice Dalle (who’s linking back up with the director after starring in Domaine).

A loose adaption by the director, Axelle Ropert and Jihane Chouaib, based on Henry James’ novella The Beast in the Jungle, the story charts a breath-taking huis clos: for 25 years, in an enormous nightclub, a man and a woman watch and wait for an unknown event. From 1979 to 2004, we follow the evolution of disco to techno music, the story of a love, the story of an obsession. Eventually, this "thing" manifests itself, but it takes a far more tragic form than expected …

The Beast In The Jungle is produced by Charlotte Vincent and Katia Khazak on behalf of Parisian firm Aurora Films in co-production with Belgium’s Frakas Productions and Austria’s WILDart Film. The movie benefits from an advance on receipts from the CNC, as well as support from the Wallonia-Brussels Federation Film and Audiovisual Centre, Proximus, Be-TV, screen.brussels, the Austrian Film Institute and the SOFICA companies Cinémage and Cofinova. The six-week film shoot will unfold in Brussels and Vienna and is scheduled to wrap mid-January. Distribution in France and international sales will both be steered by Les Films du Losange.

For the record, Aurora Films’ post-production slate currently boasts Annie Colère by Blandine Lenoir (article) and Dirty, Difficult, Dangerous by Wissam Charaf (article). Its recent output notably includes Petite Solange [+lee también:
