Wild Bunch Boss Vincent Maraval Causes Stir With Tweets Aimed at AIDS Drama ‘BPM’

Wild Bunch Boss Vincent Maraval Causes Stir With Tweets Aimed at AIDS Drama ‘BPM’
Wild Bunch boss and co-founder Vincent Maraval has sparked a backlash after firing off tweets perceived as homophobic upon learning that Robin Campillo’s AIDS drama “BPM ( Beats per Minute)” was chosen to represent France in the foreign-language Oscar category. Maraval had backed Michel Hazanavicius’s “Redoutable,” which had been shortlisted by France’s Oscar committee and is being sold by Wild Bunch.

A prominent but divisive figure in the French industry, Maraval has cultivated a reputation for brashness for more than a decade through splashy declarations in the press and personal clashes with French officials and institutions such as UniFrance. Reacting to an article published in “So Film” – a magazine co-owned by Wild Bunch – on the selection of “Bpm” on Tuesday, Maraval tweeted (with several spelling mistakes) that he had “the uncomfortable sensation of being f—–.”

He followed that up with another tweet saying that Campillo’s gay-themed film “turned me over,” an

Italian distributor Lucky Red reveals ambitious production plans

Distributor plots move into genre and family movies, beginning with Asghar Farhadi’s upcoming thriller.

Italian distribution company Lucky Red is planning to ramp up its production operation, with a focus on genre and family movies.

At an event held in Rome yesterday (June 26) to mark the company’s 30th anniversary, founder and CEO Andrea Occhipinti said: “Distribution will remain our core business, but we want to become one of the most important production companies in Italy.”

“Production may be a good way not to be too dependent on acquisitions, since it’s becoming harder to get the good movies. Instead a good Italian film can make a big difference at the box office”.

One of the most prestigious projects that Lucky Red is co-producing is Asghar Farhadi’s untitled Spanish-language thriller starring Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem and Ricardo Darin (pictured, top).

New Details Emerge on Asghar Farhadi’s Next Film as Ricardo Darin Joins Cast

Asghar Farhadi‘s been spending some time on a (still-untitled) Spanish-language debut that’ll feature Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem — so much so that, when he last began production on a feature, it wasn’t entirely clear whether it’d be this or what would become The Salesman. A year after that picture’s debut, things are moving full steam ahead: Screen Daily tells us he’s added Ricardo Darin, a.k.a. the actor in virtually every contemporary Argentinian film, and has a plan to begin shooting in a few months for a proposed Cannes 2018 premiere. He’s also lost Pedro Almodóvar as a producer, but that might be okay.

If nothing else, Farhadi will use the talents of frequent Almodóvar Dp José Luis Alcaine, along with composer Alberto Iglesias. Producer Alexandre Mallet-Guy (of The Salesman and The Past) says this will be the writer-director’s “most commercial film to date,

The Salesman

This Iranian import made news when its director found himself on the wrong side of the recent travel ban. It’s well worth the bother. Asghar Farhadi’s suspense story can’t be topped for maturity, insight or honest emotions about social stress: after an assault in a new apartment, the strain affects everything that a wife and husband do — driving a wedge through their marriage. Is it all built on a shaky foundation, like the crumbling apartment building they had to evacuate?

Asghar Farhadi to Be Represented at Oscars by First Female Space Tourist and Former NASA Scientist

Asghar Farhadi to Be Represented at Oscars by First Female Space Tourist and Former NASA Scientist
Rome – Two prominent Iranian Americans – engineer Anousheh Ansari, known as the first female space tourist, and Firouz Naderi, a former director of Solar Systems Exploration at NASA – will represent Iranian auteur Asghar Farhadi and his film “The Salesman” at the upcoming Oscars ceremony, Farhadi’s publicist said Friday.

Farhadi, whose film is nominated for the foreign-language film Oscar, had announced several weeks ago that he would boycott the Oscars ceremony to protest President Trump’s travel ban, even if exceptions were made to allow him entry to the U.S.

The film’s French producer, Alexandre Mallet-Guy, said in an email two days ago that he had decided not to attend the ceremony in solidarity with the director, and that nobody from the film would attend. He also said Farhadi would not be doing interviews if the film won.

Memento Films commits to Bruno Dumont's Joan of Arc film 'Jeannette'
Exclusive: Sales company Luxbox unveils first deals on Dumont’s musical film.

Toronto: French Sales Agents and Producers Expand Business Abroad

As financing shrinks for auteur cinema and the race to access strong projects intensifies, French sales agents and producers are diversifying and internationalizing their businesses.

A decade ago, only French powerhouses like EuropaCorp, Pathe, Gaumont and Studiocanal were involved in English-language projects with cast attached. Now, there’s several medium-size French producers and sales agents who are involved in high-profile English-language projects and are seeking to expand their footprints abroad.

Nicolas Brigaud Robert, co-founder of Films Distribution, which has Francois Ozon’s “Frantz” playing at Toronto’s Special Presentation and Katell Quillévéré’s “Heal the Living” competing at Toronto’s second edition of Platform, says this internationalization trend stems the weakening of local film industries and public funding sources.

“Most films no longer get financed in their country of origin, which is why producers are more and more relying on co-production and international sales to raise [funds],” explains Brigaud-Robert, who is

Javier Bardem Circles Asghar Farhadi’s New Film; John Sayles to Helm ‘Django Lives!’; Jan Švankmajer Begins Final Work

Even if our man on the ground didn’t much respond to Asghar Farhadi’s recent Cannes premiere, The Salesman, our anticipation and admiration remain high — but so it is for one of our age’s greatest filmmakers. (Really appreciating The Past makes some lukewarm reactions much easier to take.) Consider us pleased, then, that his Penélope Cruz-led, Almodóvar-produced, Spain-set project is steadily advancing: per Variety, it’s looking to add none other than Cruz’s husband, Javier Bardem — fun fact: also an actor — is nearly complete, script-wise, and will roll cameras “next summer or early fall.”

It’s hardly surprising that Farhadi’s written another film marked by moral intrigue and sundry complications, yet there’s already some sense of new territory: it follows “a family of wine growers living in rural Spain,” has been called, by producer Alexandre Mallet-Guy, “a psychological thriller with a dash of Agatha Christie in it,

The project was born out of Penelope Cruz and Farhadi’s mutual wish to work together, explained Mallet-Guy, who produced Farhadi’s last two movies, “The Past” and “The Salesman,” which just won Cannes’ best screenplay and actor (for Shahab Hosseini) awards.

Farhadi is currently finishing the original screenplay and will visit Spain next month to scout for locations that could feed into the script. Shooting is expected to begin next summer or early fall.
