Fuhrman, known for her role as a deranged adoptee in Orphan and Clove in The Hunger Games, will play Suzie, an ambitious American student who travels to Europe to attend a top academic institution.

After a student is murdered and several other strange deaths disrupt campus life, Suzie begins to suspect there is more to the academic staff than meets the eye.

Oscar-winning costume designer Milena Canonero is attached alongside longtime Green collaborators, production designer Richard A. Wright and cinematographer Tim Orr.

Switzerland-based Godard's first foray into 3D, the film explores cinema's search to reinvent itself with the language of 3D through a couple's efforts to communicate to save their relationship.

The production featuring Heloise Godet, Zoe Bruneau, Kamel Abdelli, Richard Chevallier and Jessica Erickson in the cast is shooting this summer. …
