Fidélité swells its ranks
Fidélité Productions welcomes two new additions to its stable: director Bertrand Blier has cast Monica Bellucci in "Combien tu gagnes?," a compassionate story to be shot in the studio early 2005, budgeted at around €10 million.
With an intensive production schedule of 4 films per year and 3 other projects to be shot this summer, Fidélité's Marc Missonnier and Olivier Delbosc confirm their ongoing support for young directors in particular, alternating veterans (such as François Ozon) with new faces. One such newcomer, Jérôme Salle, a commercials and short film director, has been entrusted with directing "Anthony Zimmer," a debut feature in the thriller genre boasting a charismatic cast led by Sophie Marceau and Yvan Attal. The film, budgeted at €11 million, is 50% co-produced by Alain Terzian. Cédric Kahn is also blasting off "L’Avion," his most ambitious production to date, with a €10 million budget, starring Isabelle Carré, Vincent Lindon and Lambert Wilson. Finally, François Ozon's new opus will team up the talents of Valéria Bruni-Tedeschi, Jeanne Moreau and Melvil Poupaud.
At the same time, three Fidélité features are due to hit French movie screens in upcoming months. Distributed by Mars: "Je suis un assassin" by Thomas Vincent, selected at this year's Directors' Fortnight, starring François Cluzet, Bernard Giraudeau and Karin Viard, slated for release mid-August, as well as, on September 1st, "5X2" by François Ozon , starring Valéria Bruni-Tedeschi, Stéphane Freiss and Françoise Fabian. They will be followed by "Mensonges et Trahisons" by Laurent Tirard, featuring Edouard Baer, on September 8, distributed by EuropaCorp.
