TFI International will make its market debut selling titles from both its own slate and UGC’s at next week’s AFM. The slate includes new projects such as Redheads, the first film from Costa Gavras’ son, Romain.
Redheads, starring Vincent Cassel and Olivier Barthelemy, is a road trip of self-destruction. Cassel is a producer along with Eric Neve and Alexandra Swenden of Les Chauves-Souris. The film will be ready in 2010.
The slate will also include Caged, which is the debut film from Yann Gozlan. The dark thriller about organ trafficking in Kosovo stars Zoe Felix, Eric Savin and Arie Elmaleh. Producers are Alain Benguigui and Thomas Verhaeghe of Sombrero Films.
TF1 will also present the first market screening of James Huth’s Lucky Luke. Starring Jean Dujardin, the film is the latest take on the beloved gunslinger. Since its release in France on October 21, the film has amassed 879,832 admissions with a lot of buzz coming from Internet fanboys in the US who are eager to get a look.
Among other films offered by TF1 at the AFM is Alain Corneau’s Love Crime, a thriller about violence in the workplace. Ludivine Sagnier and Kristin Scott Thomas star. UGC Distribution will release the film in late 2010.
TFI International and UGC first mooted plans to merge in May this year, as revealed by ScreenDaily. The deal was completed during the summer.
