The film will be titled the same as the original work: “Die, my love” and so far has no release date. The story will take place in a town in France and will recount themes related to family ties, motherhood, madness and love. Speaking to Infobae, Ariana Harwicz, commented: “I rejected several proposals from platforms to make series because they flattened, impoverished and ideologized the plot, as we already know that platforms usually do”. However, the writer could not refuse the American director’s offer and in this regard she said: “In this case, I thought it would have much more artistic quality because it was produced by Scorsese, whose production company chose the cast. In addition, they bought the three novels”,
