Holy Motors Director Enlists Sparks, Maybe Rihanna For English Language Debut

French film director Leos Carax, who was responsible for 2012’s fantastic Holy Motors, is working on his English language debut, a movie that Variety characterizes as a “music-filled drama” called Annette starring Adam Driver and Rooney Mara. Some new details have emerged about the film, and Variety reports that Rihanna is rumored to have a small part in the film, and that the movie will feature original songs by Sparks.

Rihanna will appear in the all-female Ocean’s Eleven remake and next year’s Luc Besson sci-fi flick Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets, and Sparks released a collaborative album with Franz Ferdinand last year.

Shooting for Annette is scheduled to begin in the spring.
