Jesse Eisenberg, Isabelle Huppert
and Gabriel Byrne
have boarded Norwegian writer/director Joachim Trier
‘s English-language debut, Louder Than Bombs
Norwegian-American co-production is a character-driven story written by Trier and his frequent collaborator Eskil Vogt
(Oslo, August 31st, Reprise), which has been described as a family drama with a Rashomon-style plot conceit.
The family drama “revolves around the character of a famous, late war photographer played by Huppert. On the eve of a retrospective of work, some three years after her untimely death, her husband and two sons discover an unsettling secret from her past.”
Byrne will reportedly play the husband and Eisenberg one of the sons.
Trier, who will shoot Louder Than Bombs in the US and Germany this autumn, said:
Louder Than Bombs is a character-driven piece so I am obviously thrilled to have such incredible actors working with me on this. Isabelle, Jesse, and Gabriel are all actors I have wanted to work with for a long time, so having them play together as one family feels remarkable.
We’re eager to check out the film.
