Fans of French writer-director Julia Ducournau’s visceral debut feature Raw have much to be excited about today, as indie distributor NEON has acquired the North American rights to her next film, Titane.

Unfortunately, that’s all we know about Ducournau’s mysterious sophomore outing at the moment: Casting is currently a question mark, and Titane’s plot “is being kept under wraps,” according to NEON (via Deadline). All we have at the moment is a producer—Jean-Christophe Reymond for Kazak Productions—and a sudden, inexplicable desire to consume human meat.

Raw was one of the most earth-shattering debut films in recent memory,” NEON say in a statement, “and we’ve been waiting for Julia’s next film ever since.” We would agree: Paste ranked Ducournau’s debut among the best movies of 2017, not to mention that year’s best horror films, praising the cannibalistic coming-of-age tale as “a gorefest that offers no apologies and plenty more to chew on than its effects.”

NEON’s acquisition of Titane follows not long after its pick-up of another French film, Céline Sciamma’s Portrait of a Lady on Fire, a Cannes award-winning period romance coming to theaters this December.
