Shooting Begins in France for Alexandre Aja’s Netflix Film, ’02’

Alexandra Aja’s survival thriller 02 has begun production in France. The High Tension, Piranha 3D, and Crawl director will be shooting the film for Netflix.

Screen Daily reports that production began in France on July 23rd, 2020. The film will star Mélanie Laurent (Inglourious Basterds, Now You See Me), Mathieu Amalric (The Grand Budapest Hotel, Quantum of Solace), and Malik Zidi (Poison Friends). The script is written by Christie LeBlanc (How to Make a Reality Star). The film will follow a woman (Laurent) who wakes up in a cryogenic chamber with no memory of why she is trapped inside. The tension will ratchet up throughout the film due to the fact that she is slowly running out of oxygen as she plots her escape.

In addition to directing, Aja will also produce the friend with longtime partner Gregory Levasseur.

There is no current date for 02 to debut on Netflix. Stay tuned to Horror News Network for complete coverage of this exciting new project as soon as it breaks!
