Pathe Boards Guillaume Canet’s ‘Rock n’ Roll’ With Marion Cotillard, Johnny Hallyday

9 February 2016 1:10 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Berlin — Pathe has come on board Guillaume Canet’s “Rock n’ Roll,” a comedy starring Marion Cotillard and famed French singer Johnny Hallyday.

The film, which is currently shooting in and around Paris, is being produced by Alain Attal’s Les Productions du Tresor, the company behind all of Canet’s movies.

“Rock n’ Roll” marks the first collaboration between Pathe and Canet as a director. Pathe is co-producing, handling international sales and will distribute in France. The movie also signals Canet’s return to France after making his English-language debut with “Blood Ties.”

Attal said Canet has requested that the plot of the film remain under wraps. The script of “Rock n’ Roll” is co-written by Philippe Lefebvre, who previously co-penned Canet’s debut “Mon Idole,” a dark comedy, and “Tell No One,” a tense thriller based on Harlan Coben’s novel — both of which were critically acclaimed and commercially successful. »

It has just completed its final season.

Moreau explains that there is increasing demand for studio space to film TV fiction, but that it’s important to reserve space for cinema production. For example, in 2015, Olivier Baroux’s comedy “Entre Amis,” starring Daniel Auteuil, wanted to film at Epinay, »
