Alexandre Desplat is set to reunite with director Florent Emilio Siri on the upcoming biographical drama Cloclo. The composer has scored all of the director’s previous features, including the Bruce Willis-starring thriller Hostage, the crime thriller The Nest and most recently, the historical drama L’ennemi intime. Cloclo stars Jérémie Renier as French singer Claude François who was a star of “chanson française” in the 1960 and 70s and died in a tragic accident in 1978, at the age of 39. Benoît Magimel, Monica Scattini, Ana Girardot, Joséphine Japy and Robert Knepper who plays Frank Sinatra are co-starring in the drama. Julien Rappeneau (The Heir Apparent: Largo Winch) has written the screenplay and Cyril Colbeau-Justin & Jean-Baptiste Dupont (36th Precint, Point Blank) are producing the project. Cloclo will be released in France on March 14, 2012. No word yet on an international release of the biopic.

Desplat has just recorded his score for Stephen Daldry’s Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close in New York last week. The film starring Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock will be released on December 25, 2011.

    Well, at least he has a couple of months to sleep after the big effort he has made in the last months.
