Director Claire Denis is close to wrapping a two month shoot on her next film, L'Intrus.

The film is co-produced by Franco-German channel Arte, which will air the film on its network prior to a theatrical release - as happened with Patrice Chereau's Son Frere earlier this year.

Ognon Picture is co-producing the adaptation of Jean-Luc Nancy's novel of the same name about a man suffering heart disease who leaves his mundane life to go in search of an abandoned son in journey that takes him from France to Polynesia.

Denis adapted the script with Jean-Pol Fargeau who also co-wrote the director's Trouble Every Day, Beau Travail and Nenette Et Boni as well as the upcoming Les Marins Perdus, the last film to star recently deceased French actress Marie Trintignant.

L'Intrus reteams Denis with Gregoire Colin who has acted in four of her films and won a Best Actor prize at Locarno in 1996 for Nenette And Boni as well as Beatrice Dalle who most recently played a vampire in Denis' Trouble Every Day. In the role of the father is Michel Subor who also played in Denis' Beau Travail.

Shooting began in August in Pontarlier in the Jura region of France and has moved to Polynesia and South Korea before coming back to France to wrap.
