Set in 1940s France and based on the international best-selling work of Irène Némirovsky, SUITE FRANÇAISE follows beautiful Lucile Angellier who awaits news from her husband, a prisoner of war whilst leading a stifled existence with her domineering mother-in-law. When Parisian refugees pour into their small town, soon followed by a regiment of German soldiers who take up residence in the villagers’ homes, Lucile’s life is turned upside down. In the Angellier home, Lucile initially tries to ignore Bruno, the handsome and refined German officer who has been posted to live with them. But soon, a powerful love draws them together and traps them in the tragedy of war.

Deadline is reporting that Matthias is set to star opposite Diane Kruger in “Maryland“.

Diane Kruger has set two indie features to fill her winter schedule. German-born Kruger (Wicker Park, Inglourious Basterds, The Host) will first head to the south of France to film Maryland for director Alice Winocour, the helmer who made her debut two years ago with the Cannes entry Augustine. The film tracks an ex-soldier with PTSD who is hired to protect the wife and child of a wealthy Lebanese businessman while he’s out of town. Belgian actor Matthias Schoenaerts (Bullhead, Rust and Bone) will play the soldier. Dharamsala and Darius Films are producing. Schoenaerts will be seen next in Thomas Vinterberg’s Far From the Madding Crowd which Fox Searchlight will release in May. He is repped by CAA and UBBA in France.

Matthias mentioned he was heading to France after “The Drop” promotion to the Belgium press so we assume the production will start soon.
