Claude Chabrol’s La Fille coupée en deux is scheduled to open in France on August 8. (No English title has been selected yet, but the French loosely translates as ‘The Girl Cut in Two.’) He co-wrote the screenplay with Cécile Maistre, who’d been assistant director on most of Chabrol’s pictures since Madame Bovary (1991). Other familiar names working again with the director are Eduardo Serra (cinematographer), Monique Fardoulis (editor), and son Matthieu Chabrol (music). Ludivine Sagnier (Swimming Pool) stars in her first film for the director, along with Chabrol veterans Benoît Magimel (La Demoiselle d'honneur, La Fleur du mal), François Berléand (L’Ivresse du pouvoir), and Mathilda May (Le Cri du hibou). No word yet on a North American release.
