Tahar Rahim

After his breakout performance in last years Prophet: he has turned out to be a household name in France. Now he plans to star in Lou Ye’s next film called Bitch. Tahar Rahim’s previous film has won him several chances to work with some great directors. But this is a different scenario when it comes to Lou Ye who is known for his work only outside his country. He was banned from working in his own country.

Lou Ye plans to make his next film with Tahar Rahim in the cast. The film will be a French-China co production that will be filmed in black and white; Bitch is a 2008 Cannes Atelier project. It is based on Jie Liu-Falin’s best seller book that was banned from publication but made rounds on the internets.

It is about a young Beijing professor who leaves her job to follow a new love to Paris, who in turn abandons her. Alone in the city, she encounters another man, and this is where the film will take a serious detour. Casting for the part of the woman is still to be decided.

The film has a lot of existential angst that the director Lou Ye is familiar with movies like the Summer Palace and Suzhou River.
