Paris-based Rassam is a producer on “The Little Prince” and the upcoming “Playmobil,” a $75 million animated feature film based on the iconic toy brand. He is working on a French retread of Eugenio Derbez’s fading-gigolo farce “How to Be a Latin Lover,” sourced from Globalgate and set to star Kad Merad from “Welcome to the Sticks.” Richard Grandpierre co-produces; Olivier Baroux (“Les Tuches”) directs.
Rassam has also optioned “This Crazy Heart” from Germany’s biggest independent producer-distributor Constantin, a comedy about a rich 30-something made to care for a 15-year-old heart patient. The movie has grossed $19.3 million to date. Mars Film will co-produce
