Kristen Stewart and Elle Fanning will lead the cast of the upcoming psychological drama Rosebushpruning, Deadline reports, a new take on the 1965 movie Fists in the Pocket.
From The Match Factory and Mubi, the film will be directed by Karim Aïnouz (Firebrand).
“Rosebushpruning is a dark satire of family and social values, centering on a young man suffering from epilepsy who plots the murders of his dysfunctional family.”
Josh O’Connor will also star in Rosebushpruning.
Efthimis Filippou (Dogtooth) wrote the screenplay for the remake.
“Marco Bellocchio’s astonishing debut, Fists in the Pocket, was released over 50 years ago and had a huge impact on Italian cinema and storytelling at the time,” said Aïnouz.
The filmmaker adds, “I’m excited to be collaborating with Efthimis Filippou to revisit this iconic work to create a contemporary parable about the death of the traditional patriarchal family — which I hope will be touching and provocative in equal measure.”
