Gray’s new film, The Immigrant, is screening at Cannes in competition. That film stars Jeremy Renner, Joaquin Phoenix, and Marion Cotillard, and The Weinstein Company will distribute the film in the U.S. Details about the new film, a sci-fi thriller, are being kept under wraps. Brazil-based RT Features recently produced Noah Baumbach’s Frances Ha, starring Greta Gerwig, Mickey Sumner, and Adam Driver, and Kelly Reichardt’s Night Moves, starring Jesse Eisenberg and Dakota Fanning.
