After having shot The Drop in the United States, Michael Roskam is back in Belgium with Le Fidèle. Once again produced bySavage, the director of Bullhead has imagined a love tragedy inspired from true events (the crimes of the Haemers gang). The film tells the story of Gigi (Matthias Schoenarts) a charming and immature gangster, and Bibi (Adèle Exarchopoulos) a young racing pilot from a bourgeois background. Le Fidèle will partially be shot in Wallonia (11 days) and should be finished for January 2017.

Fifth feature film by Dany Boon, Raid dingue is again co-produced by Artemis in Belgium. Jo (Alice Pol) is an incompetent police officer who wants to join the RAID, an elite corps. Being a minister, her father facilitates her entrance in the section hoping that a brutal internship led by the crummy and nearly retired Eugene Froissard will disgust her of an unattainable dream. The film will be shot in Belgium and Benuts will be in charge of special effects.

On a different note, Wallimage will co-finance a Belgian-Irish-Spanish project submitted by Frakas: Muse is a horror thriller fromJaume Balaguero, the famous genre director who’s previously titles include Nameless, Darkness, the Rec series, Fragile and Sleep tight.
The film will partially be shot in Belgium (10 days). And the local Walloon company Mikros will be in charge of the challenging special effects. And there will be many!

Wallimage, open to animation for the 19th time, will also support le Grand Méchant Renard, co-produced by Panique. Benjamin Renner (Ernest and Celestine) will direct this series of three 26 minute animated short films that will be broadcast separately or together, on TV or in cinemas. Digital Graphics Alleur is responsible for the compositing and rendering, Mute and Solo for sound editing and mix, Dame Blanche for music and sound effects recording, and BabelSub for the hearing impaired subtitles, audio description and English version.
