Not a character spin-off from the X-Men series, but rather the directing debut from the writer of Real Steel, The Bourne Legacy and the more noteworthy title in his scribing filmography: The Fall.

This was a title we had pegged to be ready for Cannes last year, but not much has been discussed about the film. This is the Haitian director’s highly anticipated follow-up to his 2010 debut, Donoma, which seems to have secured him a bigger budget. Filming reportedly wrapped last spring and will feature a cast of mostly non-professional actors that Carrenard selected from workshops. His first film, which premiered at Cannes and went on to rave reviews at a select number of smaller festivals, still has yet to see a Us release, and was filmed on a microbudget. We’re excited to see what Carrenard will hopefully unveil this year.
