The Invisibles will take place at a day shelter where, according to the project’s synopsis, “homeless people congregate for food, warmth, and connection. When local officers decide to close the shelter, social workers have three months to reintegrate the women they care for — at any cost.”
The 2018 original French film from director Louis-Julien Petit is based on the novel Sur la route des invisibles: Femmes dans la rue by Claire Lajeunie.
Graham Broadbent and Pete Czernin will produce under their Blueprint banner with Labaki. Blueprint’s Diarmuid McKeown and Ben Knight will executive produce, with Atwater Capital, Apollo Films, Elemiah and Charades.
Labaki’s 2018 feature Capernaum became the first Arab female filmmaker’s work to be nominated for the best foreign-language film Oscar. Her other feature credits include Caramel and Where Do We Go Now?.
Labaki is represented by CAA. Les Invisibles‘ remake rights were brokered by CAA Media Finance.
