The project is based on the 2018 French comedy hit, ‘Les Invisibles.’

Netflix is planning an English-language take on the French feature Les Invisibles with Cannes Fest Nadine Labaki set to direct.

The Invisibles is set at a day shelter where homeless people congregate for food, warmth, and connection. When local officers decide to close the shelter, social workers have three months to reintegrate the women they care for–at any cost.

The 2018 original French film from director Louis-Julien Petit is based on the novel Sur la route des invisibles: Femmes dans la rue by Claire Lajeunie.

Graham Broadbent and Pete Czernin will produce under their Blueprint banner with Labaki.

Labaki’s 2018 Capernaum became the first feature by an Arab female filmmaker to be nominated for the best foreign-language film Oscar.

Her other feature credits include Caramel and Where Do We Go Now?.
