About Ms. Devos they say:
Following her studies at the prestigious Cours Florent, Emmanuelle Devos began shooting with the brilliant young generation of filmmakers fresh out of La Fémis: Noémie Lvovsky and Arnaud Desplechin who brought her to Cannes in 1996 with his My Sex Life… or How I Got Into an Argument. The accolades arrived in 2001 with Jacques Audiard’s Read My Lips (César for Best Actress). She filmed again with Desplechin and Audiard and also with Nicole Garcia, Emmanuel Carrère, Alain Resnais and Xavier Giannoli, whose In The Beginning saw her win the 2010 César for Best Actress in a Supporting Role. Still devoted to theatre work, her film career continues unabated. She will soon begin shooting with Martin Provost and with Jérôme Bonnell alongside Gabriel Byrne.
You can learn more about Ms. Devos at her IMDB page. I have seen Read My Lips, La Moustache, and Coco Before Chanel. She is wonderful.
Jérôme Bonnell is a young director who has made some very interesting films. Check out his IMDB page for more information.
We do not have any more information than this at the moment (no film title and no date for filming). However, intrepid Byrneholics Paris Correspondent Aragarna is investigating, so we should have more details soon!
