Cannes: Cohen Media Group Nabs North American Rights To ‘Rodin’ (Exclusive)

12 May 2016 9:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Cohen Media Group has acquired North American rights to Jacques Doillon’s “Rodin,” a biopic of Auguste Rodin, the revolutionary 19th-century French sculptor who is best known for “The Thinker.” César winner Vincent Lindon (“The Measure of a Man”) stars as Rodin.

The movie will depict Rodin’s relationship with his life-long partner, Rose Beuret, and tumultuous affair with Camille Claudel, his most apt pupil and muse. The movie opens when Rodin enters one of the most productive periods of his career.

“The remarkable life of Auguste Rodin is finally being told in a film that promises to reveal the man behind so many great works of art. We are thrilled to be along on this journey,” said Charles S. Cohen, Chairman and CEO of Cohen Media Group.

“Rodin” also stars Izia Higelin (“Saint Amour”) and Séverine Caneele (“Humanité”) star.

Pic is currently in production.

Cannes: Wild Bunch to launch new Hazanavicius, Desplechin, Loznitsa

3 May 2016 4:28 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Slate includes films starring Louis Garrel, Marion Cotillard,

Wild Bunch will kick-off pre-sales at Cannes on Oscar-winner Michel Hazanavicius’s [pictured] new project Redoubtable revolving around the relationship between Jean-Luc Godard and actress Anne Wiazemsky in the late 1960s.

Based on Wiazemsky’s autobiographical account Un An Après, the production will star Louis Garrel as Jean-Luc Godard and Stacy Martin, last seen in High-Rise, as the director’s young muse.

The script kicks off with the 1967 shoot of La Chinoise – about a group of students who try to live by Maoists principles - and follows the couple through the late 1960s when Godard went through his so-called “revolutionary period”.

Wiazemsky – who met Godard when she was just 17-years-old and he was on the rebound from Anna Karina – was married to the filmmaker for more than a decade.

Like Hazanavicius’s Oscar-winning The Artist, the aesthetics and style of Redoubtable will take inspiration from the films around which the »

Cannes: Juliette Binoche Comedy ‘Slack Bay’ Bought for U.S.

19 April 2016 5:54 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Kino Lorber has acquired North American rights to period comedy “Slack Bay,” which will premiere in competition next month at the Cannes Film Festival.

Starring Juliette Binoche, Fabrice Luchini and Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi, the film will be director Bruno Dumont’s third film to premiere in competition at Cannes, where he previously won the Grand Prix with “Humanité” and “Flanders.”

“Slack Bay” is set in 1910 on the northern French Coast, where several tourists have vanished while relaxing on the beaches. Police inspectors soon realize that the epicenter of these mysterious disappearances must be Slack Bay, where the Slack River and the sea join at high tide and a small community of fishermen and oyster farmers live — among them, the Bréfort ferrymen, led by a patriarch nicknamed “The Eternal.”

The film is produced by 3B Productions and co-produced by Arte French Cinema, Pictanovo and Twenty Twenty Vision in association with Cnc, Canal »

14 April 2016 6:11 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Competition titles include Nicolas Windng Refn’s The Neon Demon [pictured], Jeff NicholsLoving and Xavier Dolan It’s Only The End Of The World.

The Cannes Film Festival unveiled the Official Selection for its 69th edition today at a packed press conference in Paris.

European heavyweights Pedro Almodovar, the Dardenne brothers and Ken Loach are among 20 filmmakers set to compete for the Palme d’Or.

There were few surprises in Competition – aside from the inclusion of Maren Ade’s Toni Erdmann, the first German film in Competition since Wim Wenders’s Palermo Shooting in 2008 – and the news that this year’s Palme d’Or winner will be the closing film.

The more exploratory Un Certain Regard section, however, welcomed a number of newcomers including Romanian director Bogdan Mirica’s Dogs, Us filmmaker Michael O’Shea’s The Transfiguration, and Personal Affairs (Omor Shakhsiya) by Maha Haj, a Palestinian citizen of Israel.
