A remake is on the cards for Olivier Masset-Depasse’s Mothers’ Instinct - Production / Funding - Belgium/USA
Versus Production confirms that the Belgian director will author the American remake of his film, whose credits will include actresses Jessica Chastain and Anne Hathaway. Olivier Masset-Depasse’s most recent film Mothers’ Instinct is to be the subject of an American remake, also intitled Mothers’ Instinct, which is set to be directed by the Belgian filmmaker himself. Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain will be the movie’s two heroines, with the latter co-producing the film via her production company Freckle Films. Selected for the Toronto International Film Festival in the autumn of 2018, the film made a strong impression on Jessica Chastain’s agent, who immediately recommended it to the actress.

‘A Sister’ Director Delphine Girard on Her Oscar-Nominated Short
Delphine Girard’s 16-minute Belgian thriller “A Sister” gave this year’s MyFrenchFilmFestival (Mfff) shorts competition a shot in the arm earlier this week, when the film received an Academy Award nomination for Best Live Action Short Film.

Shot from the backseat of an unnerving rural car ride and across the desks of an emergency call center, “A Sister” unravels for its viewers as it does for the protagonist, a late-night operator who gets what initially seems a mistaken call. On the other end is a shaky-voiced woman having half a conversation that doesn’t make much sense until small clues in her dialogue make it clear she’s in an unsafe situation, but unable to talk about it.
