Gerard Depardieu and A Prophet 's Tahar Rahim are both attached to star in Joachim Lafosse's new project.
The as-yet-untitled film is based around the true story of a mother who attempted suicide after murdering her five children.
Laughs all round, then, but Lafosse's co-scribe Thomas Bidegain is no stranger to bruality, having also penned A Prophet.
MK2 have acquired the project and will co-produce with Versus Productions.
Are you intrigued by this double act?
