Projects

His next feature film, " L'Infiltré " currently in preparation with Bohemian Films, is an adaptation of the true story of a "mole" who infiltrated a criminal network specialized in laundering drug money. After Henry Dunant, this is the portrait of another man of good faith. His second movie project is a comment on the way we treat animals and on the mad-cow phenomenon and other avian flus. " Halfway between a thriller and a science film, this film will have a similar feel to Hitchcock's Birds. "
