Cannes — Beta Cinema has acquired Christophe van Rompaey’s dramatic comedy “Vincent and the End of the World,” which it will be pre-selling in the Cannes Film Festival’s market. The pic reunites the team behind Van Rompaey’s feature debut “Moscow, Belgium,” which won three prizes when it screened in Cannes Critics’ Week in 2008.
“Vincent,” which is a French-Belgium co-production by A Private View, Les Enragés and Les Films de la Croisade, is shooting and is scheduled to wrap on May 27. Jean-Claude van Rijckeghem, who co-wrote “Moscow, Belgium,” penned the script for “Vincent.” The cast includes Alexandra Lamy (“Ricky”), Barbara Sarafian (“Moscow, Belgium,” ”Bullhead”) and Geert van Rampelberg (“The Broken Circle Breakdown”), with 17-year-old Spencer Bogaert (“Labyrinthus”) playing the lead.
Vincent is a 17-year-old ecologist who drives his family crazy through his preachy agitation to reduce their carbon footprint — and making a point about it via numerous suicide attempts. »

For decades, TF1 was best known for its stable of high-rating yet aging French TV dramas like “Navarro,” “Julie Lescaut” and “Josephine Guardian Angels,” but shortly after Nonce Paolini took the reins in 2007, the network started shaking up its French fiction slate, investing in fresh talent and concepts. TF1’s wake-up call came in 2008, when local media reports showed that nearly all of France’s top-rated series were American, notably “House” and the “CSI” franchise.
“These American shows revolutionized the tastes of audiences and forced TF1 to push its limits,” says Fabrice Bailly, who was appointed head of programs in 2012. But while U.S. imports are still crucial to draw large audiences to TF1, the network has ramped up its local drama skeins for the past six years with police shows such as “Falco” and “Profilage,” and dramedy series like “Clem,” about a teenage-girl-next-door raising a child with her parents. »
