Paris– Kinology is on board to co-produce and handle international sales on Antoine Bardou-Jacquet’s “Moonwalkers,” a British action comedy with Ron Perlman (“Before I Disappear”), Rupert Grint (“Harry Potter”) and Robert Sheehan (“Misfits”), produced by Georges Bermann’s Partizan.
Set in July 1969,”Moonwalkers” follows a CIA agent (Ron Perman, pictured above) who is sent to London to find Stanley Kubrick and ask him to shoot a fake moon landing in case the real one fails. Although he’s not able to meet Kubrick, he crosses paths with Jonny (Rupert Grint), the loser manager of a hippie rock band. Together they embark on an ill-fated mission to come up with a film.
Partizan is one of France’s most successful purveyors of high-profile commercials and music videos. »
