Olivier Assayas Kristin Stewart

Olivier Assayas’s English-language Personal Shopper, reuniting him with US actress Kristen Stewart, is due to start shooting in Paris next week, its producers have announced.

Described as “a ghost story set on the fringes of the fashion world”, Kristen Stewart plays a personal shopper to the stars with psychic powers that she once shared with a recently deceased twin brother.

Other cast members include Sigrid Bouaziz, Lars Eidinger, Anders Danielsen Lie, Nora von Waldstätten.

Shooting will start on Oct 27, for two weeks, before heading to Prague, London and Oman. 

Assayas and Stewart previously collaborated on Sils Maria, alongside Juliette Binoche, for which she went on to win a César for best supporting actress. 

Charles Gillibert, who also produced Assyas’s Sils Maria and Summer Hours (L’heure d’été), is lead producer on the project with support from co-producers German Detail Film, Belgian Scope Invest and Czech Sirena Film.

IFC has acquired US rights while Les Films du Losange is handling French distribution. Other French backers include Arte France Cinéma and Canal Plus.

MK2 is handling international sales.
