Jesse Eisenberg

Tal y como informa The Hollywood Reporter, el ganador del Oscar Adrien Brody, el nominado al Oscar Jesse Eisenberg y la nominada al Globo de Oro Riley Keough han firmado para protagonizar un futuro thriller titulado ‘Manodrome’. Eisenberg interpretará el papel de un conductor de Uber y aspirante a culturista llamado Ralphie, mientras que los detalles sobre los personajes de Brody y Keough no han trascendido.

La historia se centra en un tipo llamado Ralphie, quien es introducido en un culto a la masculinidad libertaria y pierde el control de la realidad cuando despierta sus deseos reprimidos. El proyecto está programado para ser presentado en próximo mercado virtual de Cannes.

El director sudafricano John Trengrove (‘The Wound’) dirigirá su primer largometraje en inglés con este proyecto producido por Keough, Gina Gammell y Ryan Zacarias a través de su sello Felix Culpa, junto con Ben Gilad para Rainmaker Entertainmenti.

A Eisenberg le veremos próximamente en el thriller satírico de ciencia-ficción ‘Dual’, así como en la comedia dramática ‘When You Finish Saving the Word’, con la que el actor debutará como director. Brody por su parte estará en la película de Wes Anderson, ‘The French Dispatch’, mientras que Keough estará en el drama biográfico de A24, ‘Zola’ y en el thriller policial de Antoine Fuqua, ‘The Guilty’.

The movie produced with Indian Paintbrush brings to life a collection of stories from the final issue of an American magazine published in a fictional 20th Century French city.

What is the plot of The French Dispatch?

A short synopsis for The French Dispatch promises that the movie will “bring to life a collection of stories from the final issue of an American magazine published in a fictional 20th century French city”.
The film will reportedly be set in both 1950s Paris and the fictional commune of Ennui-sur-Blasé.

Where was The French Dispatch filmed?

Decamping to south-west France between November 2018 and March 2019, Anderson filmed his latest movie in the little town of Angoulême.

According to Variety, The French Dispatch was the largest-scale Hollywood production to hit the area since Steven Spielberg shot scenes for Raiders of the Lost Ark in nearby La Rochelle in the early 1980s.

Anderson’s new movie also reportedly had a budget of $25 million (£18.9 million) to play with.


Speaking to NME last year, The End of the F***ing World star Alex Lawther said that while the experience of filming a “teeny-tiny” part of the film was “amazing”, he feared that his part “might be on the cutting room floor”.

“They took over this little town in Angoulême in the south of France and it was one of the biggest productions I’ve ever been involved in,” Lawther recalled about working on The French Dispatch.

“Wes likes to keep the spirit of a short film. All of the actors would eat with him every evening and discuss how the day went. I was only there for two days, but I wish I could have been there bit longer.”
