PARIS: He made perhaps the most famous French film of the century so far with “Amelie,” and now Jean-Pierre Jeunet says he’ll make his new movie with Netflix after failing to find a traditional backer.
The US streaming giant has found great success in poaching directors who increasingly struggle to get funding elsewhere, including Martin Scorsese (“The Irishman“), Alfonso Cuaron (“Roma“) and Jane Campion (“The Power of the Dog“).
