Matthias Schoenaerts To Topline FAITHFUL, ARDENNES
Bullhead movie protagonists are teaming up for two different projects. Both movies directly have in common the outfit behind Bullhead –Savage Film’s Bart Van Langendonck and feature two roles by same actor, Matthias Schoenaerts who gave a breakthrough performance in a gripping crime story set amid an unlikely underworld of farmers and gangsters.
Firstly, Schoenaerts, who can be seen in Rust & Bone, will be reteaming with his Bullhead director Michael R. Roskam for his third feature named The Faithful. Secondly, he’s also been cast in Robin Pront‘s directorial debut, The Ardennes, which has been written by Bullhead actor Jeroen Perceval (Diederik).
Roskam was reportedly writing the script with a high-profile scribe whose identity has yet to be revealed. The film noir Faithful is centering on a crime gang in Brussels and is expected to start shooting in spring 2014.
On the other side, The Ardennes is described as Trainspotting meets Fargo project, which is a road movie written by Bullhead’s supporting thesp, centering on three young Belgian losers who embark on a trip to the Ardennes forest, near the border of France, to get rid of a corpse.
