It’s been a bit of a wait for the follow up to Cristian Mungiu‘s terrific 2007 feature 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days, but it looks like a festival release for his next film is on the horizon. Deadline reports that Wild Bunch has reteamed with Mungiu for the new film, which is “set in an Orthodox convent in Romania,” and “centers on a young woman’s descent into madness, her subsequent exorcism and the police investigation it sparks.” I’m sick to death of exorcism movies, but I’ll make an exception for Mungiu. Wild Bunch’s Vincent Maraval says that the movie “has elements of 4 Months, but with a much more intense twist.” Hopefully, that twist does not involve sending the audience to a website.
Pre-sales on the untitled film will go down in Berlin, with a possible release at Cannes in May. Wild Bunch is also planning to submit Rufus Norris‘ Broken, which centers on “the father of an 11-year old girl living in North London who witnesses a violent attack which changes the way she looks at the world around her.” The film stars Tim Roth, Cillian Murphy, Rory Kinnear, and Bill Milner.
