Laurent Cantet Takes Cuban Drama VUELTA A ITACA

Palm-winning director lines up his next feature.

French filmmaker Laurent Cantet (‘The Class’) has been tapped to direct the Spanish-language drama ‘Vuelta a Itaca,’ reports Variety.

The drama place takes on a rooftop terrace in present-day Havana and follows Amadeo who returns home to Cuba after a 16-year exile. Over one night, Amadeo and his childhood friends retrace their lives, gradually revealing their doubts, secrets and broken dreams.

Cantet penned the screenplay with Cuban novelist Leonardo Padura. Filming is scheduled to commence later this year.
