After tonight’s screening of HIGH LIFE at the Brattle, Claire Denis noted that one project she’s currently working on is an adaption of Denis Johnson’s THE STARS AT NOON, currently slated to feature Robert Pattinson in a lead role.

On working with the same actors multiple times: “It’s like kissing! If you liked it once, why not try it again?” (She and Robert Pattinson are planning to make another film together 💙)

About the book:
Set in Nicaragua in 1984, The Stars at Noon is a story of passion, fear, and betrayal told in the voice of an American woman whose mission in Central America is as shadowy as her surroundings. Is she a reporter for an American magazine as she sometimes claims, or a contact person for Eyes of Peace? And who is the rough English businessman with whom she becomes involved? As the two foreigners become entangled in increasingly sinister plots, Denis Johnson masterfully dramatizes a powerful vision of spiritual bereavement and corruption.
