Hungry Hearts, Cub exec Louis Tisné launches production outfit.
Hungry Hearts and Cub executive producer Louis Tisné is launching new production outfit Elastic Film, under whose banner he is lining up collaborations with Hungry Hearts director Saverio Costanzo and Cub director Jonas Govaerts.
In the wake of horror Cub, which won Best Director at Sitges and will be released in the UK this summer by Altitude, director Govaerts and Tisné are in development on two English-language projects.
The first, a horror taking place in the rock n’ roll industry, is currently being written by Irish screenwriter Kevin Lehane (Grabbers) while the second is an adaptation of a short horror story.
Former Pathé and Momentum exec Tisné, who operates out of London and Berlin, is also set to reteam with Hungry Hearts director Costanzo and producer Mario Gianani’s and Lorenzo Mieli’s Rome-based production company Wildside on two projects, which are in active development.
Drama Hungry Hearts won Best Actor and Best Actress in Venice for Adam Driver and Alba Rohrwacher.
Elastic is also set to re-team with Belgium production company Potemkino in a bid to tap into Belgium financing opportunities after the duo worked together on Cub.
Potemkino is currently co-producing Terence Davies’ A Quiet Passion with Hurricane Films and co-produced Berlin Competition entry Eisenstein in Guanajuato.
“After a fantastic 2014 with my two first productions launching in Venice Competition and TIFF Midnight Madness respectively and both winning important prizes, I am delighted to take my international and European vision of film producing into a consolidated production structure.” Tisné told ScreenDaily.
“2015 is a year of consolidation and development in preparation for a productive 2016.”
Tisné most recently served as exec producer on debut-director Bo Mikkelsen’s What We Become, produced by Copenhagen-based-Meta Films.
