Despite the disappointing results of her last European effort, 2002's Ginostra, Andie MacDowell has once again hooked up with a French producer.

Claude Carrere, whose credits include cult hit Nid De Guepes and recent release Corps A Corps, will produce MacDowell in The Last Sign. Director Douglas Law began shooting early takes in Montreal on June 25.

The film, which has been in development for four years, is based on the book Un Soleil Trop Tard by Anne Ray-Wendling. Billed as Ghost meets The Sixth Sense, the story was worked on by Nanni Moretti collaborator Heidrun Schleff and Law himself. The film is a France-UK co-production from France 2 Cinema and Spice Factory.

Co-starring in the Euros 11m The Last Sign is Brotherhood Of The Wolf star Samuel Le Bihan. This is the third European outing for MacDowell in the recent past. She starred in 2000's well-received Harrison's Flowers and in last year's disappointment Ginostra alongside Harvey Keitel. Both films were produced by StudioCanal.
