About Carmen Movie:

  • Carmen is a musical drama film directed by Benjamin Millepied in his feature directorial debut from a screenplay by Alexander Dinelaris Jr., Loïc Barrère, and Millepied from a screen story by Millepied and Barrère. The film stars Melissa Barrera, Paul Mescal, Rossy de Palma, and Tracy “The DOC” Curry.
  • In May 2017, Benjamin Millepied was set to make his feature film directorial debut with the film version of Carmen for Chapter 2, originally conceived as “a modern-day reimagining of one of the world’s most celebrated operas”.
  • Once completed, Millepied recognized his film was less an adaptation than “a version of Bizet’s tragedy from a parallel universe”. Loïc Barrère and Millepied will write the script. In May 2019, Sony Pictures Classics acquired distribution rights for the film and Nilo Cruz would write the script.
  • In November 2020, Alexander Dinelaris Jr. was revealed to have co-written the script with Millepied and Loïc Barrère.
  • In May 2019, it was announced that Melissa Barrera and Jamie Dornan were cast as Carmen and Aidan, respectively.
  • In November 2020, Paul Mescal replaced Dornan and Rossy de Palma was cast in the film.
  • Principal photography commenced on 18 January 2021 in Australia with Jörg Widmer as the cinematographer, and wrapped in early March 2021.
  • Nicholas Britell composed the score and co-wrote the songs with Julieta Venegas, Taura Stinson and Tracy “The DOC” Curry. Lynn Fainchtein served as music producer and music supervisor.
  • The film had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on 11 September 2022. It had a limited theatrical release in the United States on 21 April 2023 by Sony Pictures Classics. It is set to be released theatrically in France on 14 June 2023 by Pathé Distribution, and later in Australia on 13 July, 2023 by Madman Films.
