Léa Seydoux Starrer ‘The Unknown’ Lands at Neon

Neon is plunging into the great unknown with Léa Seydoux and filmmaker Arthur Harari. The indie outfit has landed North American rights to The Unknown, and appropriate for its title, its logline is currently unknown.

But Harari’s pedigree may offer some clues. Harari earned acclaim as the screenwriter of Anatomy of a Fall, which Neon landed out of Cannes before it went on to win the Palme d’Or and later the original screenplay Oscar. Harari previously worked with Anatomy Director Justine Triet on the Cannes title Sibyl (2019). As a writer-director, he is also known for Onoda: 10,000 Nights in the Jungle, which opened Un Certain Regard at Cannes in 2021 and went on to win the original screenplay César.

Seydoux is at Cannes with The Second Act and is coming off a role in Dune: Part 2, while Neon is at the fest with Red Rocket director Sean Baker’s latest feature, Anora, which will bow in competition on May 21. 

Jeff Deutchman, Neon president of acquisition and production, negotiated the deal with producer Nicolas Anthomé, who repped the filmmakers. Bathysphere is producing The Unknown, with Pathé co-producing and selling international rights in Cannes.
