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.

Tim-Burton-On-Set-of-Dumbo

 
Disney has officially confirmed the start of production on director Tim Burton’s live-action Dumbo movie. It was Burton’s own live-action Alice in Wonderland adaptation (which was released in 2010) that kicked off the current trend of the Mouse House re-making its animated classics in live-action. Since then, the Mouse House has released such movies as Maleficent, Cinderella, The Jungle Book and most recently Beauty and the Beast to big returns at both the domestic and global box office, as well as a strong critical reception in the case of Cinderella and The Jungle Book in particular (with Jungle Book picking up an Oscar for its groundbreaking visual effects too).

Based on the 1941 animated Disney classic of the same name, Dumbo reunites Burton with a few members of his trusted acting ensemble; including, Michael Keaton, making this his first film with Burton since Batman Returns in 1992; Danny DeVito, who costarred in Batman Returns and last worked with Burton on Big Fish in 2003; and Eva Green, who collaborated with Burton on Dark Shadows in 2012 and Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children in 2016. Also teaming up with Burton here, for the first time, is Colin Farrell in a leading role.

All four of the aforementioned actors are now confirmed for the Dumbo cast, along with young newcomers Nico Parker and Finley Hobbins, as well as Roshan Seth (Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom), DeObia Oparei (Independence Day: Resurgence), Sharon Rooney (Two Doors Down) and Douglas Reith (Downton Abbey) in supporting roles. In addition to confirming that production is underway now, Disney released the following synopsis for Dumbo, along with a picture of Burton on the film’s set:

Disney’s new live-action feature film Dumbo introduces Holt Farrier (Farrell), a former circus star who finds his life turned upside down when he returns from the war. Circus owner Max Medici (DeVito) enlists Holt to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when Holt’s children (Parker and Hobbins) discover that Dumbo can fly, persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Keaton) and an aerial artist named Colette Marchant (Green) swoop in to make the peculiar pachyderm a star.

The film will be released on March 29, 2019.
