Moonday is full of future projects from your favourite directors. Mia Hansen-Love, Nicolas Pariser or the Boukherma brothers, here are six projects that the Moonday team can't wait to discover!


Vignette french speaking


Nicolas Pariser is writing his new feature, Le parfum vert. It will be produced by Emmanuel Agneray (Bizibi) and co-produced by the Belgian company Versus Production. The cast includes Vincent Lacoste and Sandrine Kiberlain. Synopsis: In the middle of a performance, an actor of the Comédie Française is murdered by poisoning. Martin, one of the troupe actors, witnesses this murder and is suspected by the police and pursued by the mysterious organization that ordered the murder. With the help of a comic book artist, Claire, Martin will solve the mystery of this death during an eventful trip in Europe.


A small coastal town in the southwest of France is on high alert after a surfer disappeared - Soon, the incredible truth is revealed: a shark is prowling in the harbour. Here is the plot of the next Ludovic and Zoran Boukherma's horror movie. L'année du requin is produced by Baxter Films and Films Velvet. The Jokers Films will distribute it in France in 2022, and WTFilms sells it worldwide.


Another brother-director duo is preparing a highly awaited film, albeit in a different genre. Guillaume and Stéphane Malandrin will indeed benefit from Wallimage's brand new development support, Wallimpact, for their project: Maman, papa, l'extraterrestre et moi tells the adventures of an eight-year-old boy and an alien who feeds on the energy of cell phones. The comedy follows in the footsteps of the duo's previous films.


After her previous film, Bergman Island, was presented in competition at the Cannes Festival, Mia Hansen-Løve went back to work and wrapped the first part of One Fine Morning. Léa Seydou plays Sandra, who often visits her ill father, Georg. As she and her family embark on an assault course through hospitals and older people's homes to get Georg settled in a safe place, Sandra unexpectedly meets Clément, a long-lost friend with whom a passionate but uncertain relationship begins. Melvil Poupaud, Pascal Greggory and Nicole Garcia complete the casting.


While her previous film Le Milieu de l'horizon should be released on September 29 in France and on November 3 in Belgium, the Swiss director Delphine Lehericey is currently shooting her 4th feature: Last Dance. She gathers well-known and younger actors such as François Berléand, Kacey Mottet-Klein, the dancer La Ribot, Déborah Lukumuena, astrid Whettnall, Jean-Benoît Ugeux and Elise Havelange. Supported by Swiss Films, Screen Brussels and the Belgian Tax Shelter, the film is produced by Box Productions, co-produced by Need Productions and is sold worldwide by Be For Films.


Finally, Houda Benyamina is preparing a second feature: Toutes pour unes. After the success of Divines, the project received the CNC advance on receipts and promised a feminine take on "The Three Musketeers". It is produced by Easy Tiger and Haut et Court.
