Bolstered by the success of "Whatever You Say" by Guillaume Canet, Les Productions du Trésor expand their production slate.
Debut feature for both director Guillaume Canet and Les Productions du Trésor, "Whatever You Say" (French title "Mon idole"), released in France on 300 prints, has attracted over 500,000 spectators. Already released in Belgium and Switzerland and about to hit the screens in Russia, the film has also been sold in Portugal, Israel, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Bosnia, Croatia, Greece and Canada. And, while waiting to be presented to Asian buyers ("Whatever You Say" has been selected at the Yokohama French Film Festival), it is drawing interest from the Americans, as much for its theatrical release as for a possible remake.
This ongoing success has boosted Les Productions du Trésor to scale up its slate, with projects such as "Narco" by Tristan Aurouet and Gilles Lellouche (directors of the short film "Pourquoi...passkeu"). It is a fiction film budgeted at €7.5 million involving sequences highly charged with special effects, whose shoot commences September 15. Other projects are "Le Mauvais œil," a psychological thriller and debut feature for Félicie Dutertre and François Rabes as well as Guillaume Canet’s next film and "Les Acculés" by Olivier Doran.
Short films have by no means been left out in the cold by the company, since Alain Attal plans to produce one short per year, of which the latest is "Rien de grave" by Renaud Philipps starring Jean Dujardin and Antoine Duléry.
