SPC picks up 'Paris Can Wait'
Eleanor Coppola’s narrative directorial and screenwriting debut has found its North American home following its recent Toronto world premiere.
Diane Lane, Alec Baldwin and Arnaud Viard star in the story of a somewhat neglected wife who embarks on a magical road trip across France with her successful producer husband’s associate.
Coppola and Fred Roos produced Paris Can Wait, while executive producers are Michael Zakin, Lisa Hamilton Daly, Tanya Lopez, Rob Sharenow and Molly Thompson.
The film is an American Zoetrope and Lifetime Films production in association with Corner Piece Capital and Tohokushinsha Film Corp.
A + E Television retains second TV window rights to the film and Protagonist Pictures handles international sales.
ICM Partners and Barry Hirsch brokered the deal on behalf of the filmmakers, with Thompson on behalf of A + E and Lifetime Films, and SPC.
Paris Can Wait premiered in Special Presentations. Coppola previously directed the 1991 documentary Hearts Of Darkness: A Filmmaker’s Apocalypse, about the making of her husband Francis Ford Coppola’s war film Apocalypse Now.
