Home Movies New Movie from “The Artist” Director Set in Chechnya, But Will Film...

Exclusive: So much talk about Chechnya these days because of the Boston bombings: the next movie to be directed Michel Hazanvicius, Oscar winner for “The Artist,” is set in the troubled country. It’s a remake of Fred Zinneman’s “The Search,” a 1948 movie about the Holocaust  that starred Montgomery Clift. There’s been talk that the new “Search” might be in trouble because of the Chechnya political situation. But producer Thomas Langmann, who also produced “The Artist,” says everything is on track to begin production this fall. “The Search,” which stars Oscar nominated Berenice Bejo, will shoot not in Chechya but in Georgia, he told me. Gossip that Warner Bros. might change its mind are unfounded. Bejo plays an NGO worker who reunites an orphan with his family. The Clift role hasn’t been cast yet.
