MK2 has acquired and will co-produce the next film from Joachim Lafosse. Gerard Depardieu and A Prophet star Tahar Rahim join Emilie Dequenne in the as-yet untitled project which is inspired by the true story of a mother who murdered her five children before attempting suicide.

The events sent shockwaves throughout Belgium at the time and the film focuses on the relationship between a benevolent doctor who raises his friend’s brother as if he were his own son. When the boy grows up, he falls in love and starts a family but the object of his love is drawn into a web of jealousy and blame, leading to the inevitable tragic end.

Lafosse wrote the screenplay with A Prophet writer Thomas Bidegain.

Versus Production is co-producing with MK2. The latter also has French distribution.
