The film tells the story of a provocative stand-up comedian (Adam Driver) and his wife, a world-famous soprano (Marion Cotillard). Their glamorous life takes an unexpected turn when their daughter Annette is born, a girl with a unique gift.
It was announced in November 2016 that Leos Carax was set to make his English language film debut, with Adam Driver, Rooney Mara and Rihanna in talks to star in the film. Filming was slated to begin in Spring 2017. In March 2017, Amazon Studios acquired the film; however, Mara and Rihanna were no longer involved in the project. In May, Michelle Williams was cast to replace Mara, with filming now slated to begin in July. Production on the film stalled, with screenwriters Ron and Russell Mael attributing the delay to Driver's commitments to Star Wars. Filming was moved to begin in Summer 2019.
