French filmmaker Coralie Fargeat, who directed the 2017 horror film Revenge, has lined up her next project. She’ll be directing The Substance, which Deadline reports is an “explosive feminist take on body horror.”
Demi Moore (Corporate Animals) and Margaret Qualley (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood) will star in The Substance. The project is being made for Universal Pictures and Working Title Films, with Working Title partners Eric Fellner and Tim Bevan producing alongside Fargeat.
Production will begin in Paris this May.
