BRADY CORBET & MONA FASTVOLD MENTION THE CHILDHOOD OF A LEADER






During promo for their new movie The Sleepwalker, Brady & Mona mentioned a little bit about The Childhood of a Leader.

Mona Fastvold and Corbet’s upcoming project, The Childhood of a Leader, which he is going to direct, will star Bérénice Bejo, Tim Roth, Stacy Martin and Robert Pattinson. The script is influenced by everyone from John Fowles and Jean-Paul Sartre, to Volker Schlöndorff’s Young Törless. I suggested checking out Christian Kracht’s cinematic novel Imperium in the Norwegian translation for last minute reading, as pre-production begins next week.

AKT: Tell me about the next projects.

Brady: The next film we’re making, I’m directing what Mona and I wrote together and we’re working together very closely from beginning to end as we did with this one. Basically, what determines who takes the lead is just whose story it is to tell.

Mona: And who is not giving birth to a baby.

Brady: And who is not giving birth to a baby. We’re making a film called The Childhood Of A Leader. It’s a historical film, which is one of the reasons why it’s been so difficult to put it together.

AKT: Historical set in what time?

Brady: 1919 mostly. It’s Bérénice Bejo, Tim Roth, Stacy Martin and Robert Pattinson. It’s about a family that relocates to France for the Paris Peace Conference and about the events leading up to the Treaty of Versailles, partially. It’s funny, whereas this project [The Sleepwalker] was about subverting the clichés of psycho-sexual thrillers, this is a historical film that’s not really a historical film. It’s about the childhood of a would-be-fascist. We’ll start shooting in January.
