Amazon Studios has acquired U.S. and Canadian distribution rights to “Annette,” a music-filled drama starring Adam Driver and Rihanna, reports Variety.

Plot details are scarce, but a producer told Variety in November, “the movie depicts the rise and fall of an intense love story.”

Rooney Mara was previously attached, but had to exit the film due to other commitments. The producers are now looking for a new female lead.

The film marks the English-language debut of cult French director Leos Carax. It features original songs by the Sparks, the art-rock band founded in 1971 by Ron and Russell Mael.

Shooting on “Annette” will begin this spring across several international locations, including Los Angeles.
