What does your work mean to you?
It’s a beautiful art. I find it extremely joyful to be able to play different characters. In true life I am shy, my job allows me to canalize my demons. It is jubilant to be able to “liberate “ myself by performing a role.

Was becoming an actress your dream as a child?
Not at all. At the start I wanted to be an Egyptologist…. But then at age 18 I started taking theater courses and… here I am!!!

The movie The Dreamers was the picture that put you on the spotlights. How important was that role for both your personal and professional growth?
I have wonderful memories of working with the great maestro Bertolucci, it’s most certainly one of my most memorable experiences. It’s thanks to him that I’m still acting today. On the set he was very gentle, respectful and fatherly. When the movie came out , on the other hand, it was a brutal experience. Most journalists wanted to talk about was nudity, when in my opinion there were other more important subjects in the movie …no?

What is your favorite movie?
Cries And Whispers

Is there a role you would have liked to play?
Virginia Woolf

What is your opinion on Weinstein?
I already expressed myself repeatedly on this matter; I would rather not talk about it anymore.

You are of French origins, how difficult was it to be accepted in Hollywood? I bet it hasn’t been an easy task…
In France the film director has full power of decision, unlike in the USA where even a famous professional such as Ridley Scott doesn’t have the last word! For my part the work it’s identical wherever it is an independent movie or a big Hollywood production. You may feel the difference in the budget they dispose for the movie set , the number of actors featuring in the movie… As far as I’m concerned, the hardest part is definitely to train for roles with all the different accents, in different languages, other than my mother tongue.

Eva Green is set to star in a new astronaut action-drama from Disorder director and Mustang co-writer Alice Winocour.

Winocour is currently prepping the project, tentatively titled Proxima, for a nine-week shoot beginning in January. Green will be joined by German actor Lars Eidinger (Sils Maria, Sense8). An American co-star is soon to be announced for the bilingual drama.

Green will play an astronaut with the European Space Agency (ESA) that is preparing to go on a one-year mission to the International Space Station (ISS), but must first face intense training as well as the impending separation from her 7-year-old daughter.

Winocour says the story takes place as Green’s character prepares to depart. “[It] is just before the launch, which is the worst part of the astronaut’s training. Because when they get in space they are ready for everything, but just before is really the hard part — how to say goodbye to your relatives, how to prepare your body for space,” she told The Hollywood Reporter. “It’s really about how you put your fears and pain into something bigger than your life.”

“The idea is also to have an astronaut that can be a superheroine and at the same time a mother, because I think in movies mothers are always very weak characters. It’s time that women should assume that you can be an astronaut and a mother too,” she said, speaking at the Deauville Film Festival, where she is on the jury.

Green will be trained by French astronaut Thomas Pesquet, who completed a six month ISS tour in June alongside American astronaut Peggy Whitson. Pesquet’s return has created a media frenzy in France and boosted public interest in the ESA.

Winocour will be partnering with the ESA to film at their headquarters in Cologne, Germany, as well as the Russian Space Agency to film a launch in Kazakhstan. The director has already traveled to Kazakhstan to view a launch, fueling her passion for the project she has been researching for two years.

The story was inspired in part by the Cesar winner’s own separation from her 7-year-old daughter while shooting and promoting films away from home, she said, as well as her fascination with space. “I thought space is always in science fiction movies, but now it is our reality,” she said of creating a more down-to-earth drama.

Green was cast because she embodies an otherworldliness that Winocour has come to know in astronauts. “I think Eva has this thing that she is here and in another world as well, that she’s not on earth. And I think she’s really sexy too,” said Winocour of the former Bond girl, who also stars in Tim Burton’s upcoming live-action Dumbo. “I think it’s time for her to play in her native language and to act something less gothic, maybe more human.”

She cites James Cameron’s The Abyss as an inspiration for the tone of the film.

The film will be produced by Dharamsala, Winocour’s collaborators on her previous films Augustine and Disorder, and distributed by Pathe.
