Directors Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud were back on the French Croisette in Cannes, but this time not to present a new movie but announce the making of two in a near future. The First En Attendant Azrael aka Waiting for Azrael will start shooting on the 19th of July at the Legendary Babelsberg Studios in Berlin and will be followed by Le Onzième Laureate aka The Eleventh Laureate described by it’s creators as something of a Western Spaghetti with a Persian Flavour, set on the Caspian Sea. Given the wild imagination of the creative team behind this new cinematic adventure, there has been much speculation as to what will be the outcome and definitive onscreen result of what is meant to also be a visual tribute to cinema history and film aesthetics notably in the use of Technicolor and Cinemascope as means of illustration.
