MK2 has announced the acquisition of Patrice Chereau's latest Prosecution.

MK2 will handle international sales on the film which begins shooting in Paris next week.

Romain Duris, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Jean-Hughes Anglade star in a story of 'crazy love and emotional persecution,' according to MK2. The film is from an original script by Anne-Louise Trividic and Chereau.

This is MK2's first time collaborating with Chereau whose last film, Gabrielle, was with StudioCanal.
