Scorsese, Zoe distrib ‘Belle’

Martin Scorsese will co-present a re-release of Luis Bunuel’s 1967 “Belle De Jour,” the first release of Miramax’s French cinema Zoe label.

The Catherine Deneuve-starrer opens in New York on June 28. All prints and advertising will carry a “Martin Scorsese presents” credit. A Miramax spokeswoman said Scorsese was invited to lend his name because of his fondness for the film and his interest in film preservation. In a statement, Scorsese called the movie “ravishing, perverse, hilarious and poetic all at once.”

Miramax recently acquired the film from the estate of producers Robert and Raymond Hakim. “Belle,” which tells the story of a bored Parisian housewife who leads a double life as a call girl, has been unavailable in the U.S. since the 1970s.

The movie is the first release of Miramax Zoe, the distrib’s French cinema division. Rene Clement’s “Purple Noon” will be re-released by Zoe next year.
