IANS  |  Los Angeles 

The Driver-starrer "Annette", Leos Caraxs long-gestating English-language romantic musical, is being revived.

Charles Gillibert's CG Cinema, whose credits include "Personal Shopper", has come on board to help revive the on-again-off-again project, which will start shooting in mid-August, reports

will release the film in the US.

Tracing the rise and fall of two star-crossed Hollywood lovers and the exceptional destiny of their daughter, "Annette" will bring together the rock band Sparks, which is composing original songs, and celebrated Marius de Vries, who is known for his work on "La La Land", "Moulin Rouge" and "Cats".

Over the course of his 30-year career, Carax has garnered just a few directing credits, though his films have won attention for their artistic flair, including "Boy Meets Girl" "Mauvais Sang," "Les Amants Neuf" and "Holy Motors".

A passion project for Carax, "Annette" was first announced in 2016 with another French but failed to get off the ground as the financing was not in place.
