Natalie Portman and Lily Rose Depp will play spiritualist sisters in PLANETARIUM, a 1930s-set drama from French helmer Rebecca Zlotowski, reports Variety. Here’s a bit of some cool info—the film will mark Portman’s first time working with a French director since her role in Luc Besson’s LEON. Nice!

While we don't know much about the plot, Zlotowski told the site that the film follows the journey of sisters who are believed to possess the supernatural ability to connect with ghosts. They cross paths with a visionary French producer while performing in Paris.

The political context of PLANETARIUM will have a modern resonance with the current crisis and rise of extremism in Europe. The character of the producer is freely inspired by Jewish producer Bernard Natan, one of the biggest French film industry figures of the ’20s and ’30s, who eventually died in Auschwitz.

The film is co-written by Zlotowski and Robin Campillo, who previously penned “The Returned,” the feature film that inspired Canal Plus’ supernatural drama series. Frederic Jouve’s Les Films Velvet is producing; Ad Vitam will distribute in France. Principal photography will begin in Paris in September for an expected delivery in May 2016.
