Whoa!! Athena, the newest movie from French director Romain Gavras, has a teaser trailer that debuted on Netflix (of Our Day Will Come, The World Is Yours).
In order to make a movie about young people fighting with the police in France, he partners up with the talented director Ladj Ly, who also co-wrote the story and co-produces this.
After their youngest brother tragically dies in mysterious circumstances, the lives of the three siblings are turned upside down.
ATHENA Cast, and Release Date
That is the only extremely brief narrative that is currently available, and from the clip, it appears to be a hybrid of both La Haine and Ly’s previous picture Les Miserables (which rules).
The cast of Athena includes Ouassini Embarek, Sami Slimane, Anthony Bajon, Dali Bensalah, and Alexis Manenti. Although nothing has been confirmed as of yet, it might make its debut at a few events in the fall. For now, take a look at the video below, which includes a quote that explains the source of the title.
“It’s hard to control your rage because a man will pay with his soul to get his retribution.” After their youngest brother tragically dies in mysterious circumstances, the lives of the three siblings are turned upside down.
The renowned French director Romain Gavras, who previously made the movies Our Day Will Come and The World Is Yours as well as numerous music videos and a few short films, is behind Athena, also known as RG03 or Moussa in France. Romain Gavras, Ladj Ly (of Les Misérables fame), and Elias Belkeddar wrote the film’s script. Ladj Ly is a co-producer as well.
