The Lumiere sales strategy for €4 million Phantom Boy is to close pre-sales in the run-up to the film’s completion, which will be in 2014.
Also on Lumiere’s sales slate is Peter Monsaert’s thriller Offline and various library titles, among them Meisje by Dorothee Van Den Berghe.
Here in Cannes, Lumiere boss Jan De Clercq has revealed that the company is continuing to generate huge sales on its acquisitions of Scandinavian crime drama.
Now, the company is branching out. It recently snapped up Real Humans, the new Scandinavian drama series being sold by News Corporation-owned Shine Group.
