Miranda July gets some Satisfaction

Variety has learned that performance artist Miranda July has signed with France’s MK2 and the UK’s Film4 to write, direct and co-star in the $8 million Satisfaction, her first since her incredibly strange but beautiful debut, whose award-winning debut feature Me and You and Everyone We Know won a Sundance special jury prize and the Camera d’Or at Cannes in 2005.

Satisfaction is described as a “contempo romantic comedy” about a young couple: “Jason, goes off on an ecological mission; Sophie starts an affair with an older man. Both events threaten the relationship.” The two male roles (Jason and the older man) have yet to be cast.

The film will be shot in L.A. this summer, and is being shopped around for first-run U.S. rights.
