Hong Sang-soo Reunites with French Actress for New Film

      May 13, 2016 10:08

      Award-winning filmmaker Hong Sang-soo has begun shooting a new film starring French actress Isabelle Huppert.

      The film is set against the backdrop of this year's Cannes Film Festival, which began in style on Wednesday and runs until May 22.

      Hong's new project stars veteran actors Jung Jin-young and Chang Mi-hee, both of whom are working with the director for the first time. Kim Min-hee, who worked with Hong on his previous film, "Right Now, Wrong Then," will also make a cameo appearance in the film. "Right Now, Wrong Then" won the top prize at the Locarno International Film Festival in 2015.

      Huppert starred in Hong's 2012 film "In Another Country," which was invited to compete at the Cannes Film Festival in that year.

      The new project, in which Huppert reportedly plays a high school teacher and writer, fulfills a vow the pair made after making "In Another Country" to work together again.
