Sony Pictures Classics announced today that they have acquired all North American, Latin American and Eastern European rights to Jacques Audiard's (A Prophet) Rust and Bone from Hengameh Panahi of Celluloid Dreams. The film recently wrapped production.
The film was co-written by Jacques Audiard and Thomas Bidegain and adapted from the acclaimed book of short stories by Craig Davidson. Just as he did with the prison genre in A Prophet, Jacques Audiard will renew the love story with Rust and Bone, his stirring new film filled with romance and suspense.
Rust and Bone stars Academy Award winner Marion Cotillard (La Vie en Rose, Midnight in Paris) and Matthias Schoenaerts (Bullhead), and is produced by Pascal Caucheteux, who SPC had previously worked with on the features, Of Gods and Men and A Prophet.
"Jacques Audiard is one of Europe's finest directors, and the same goes for producer Pascal Caucheteux. We are thrilled to be working with them, and Hengameh Panahi of Celluloid Dreams, once again," said Sony Pictures Classics.
