Audiard claims the concept for “Emilia Perez” occurred to him as “an opera libretto in four acts” more than two years ago, and that’s how he penned the treatment. “It was the first time that an idea for a film came to me in this shape, and that might explain why I will direct the movie in a studio.” Audiard says, “It’s like a return to a primary intuition.”

Argentinian trans actor Karla Sofia Gascón will play a feared Mexican cartel leader who becomes a woman to avoid the law. The script is penned by Audiard, he co-wrote the screenplay with Thomas Bidegain, who collaborated on Audiard’s most successful films, including “A Prophet” and the Palme d’Or winner “Dheepan.”
