LeMonde wrapping pair of pics

Canadian production company has upped its slate to between 5-8 films per year

MONTREAL — Le Monde Entertainment, Alliance Communications’ genre pic division, announced Wednesday that it is completing production on two new films, the thriller “Hidden Agenda” and the family-fantasy film “It Came From the Sky.”

“Sky,” starring John Ritter and JoBeth Williams, is written and directed by Jack Bender, with Ronna Slutske producing and Bender and Le Monde president John Fremes serving as executive producers.

It is about a disgruntled couple, played by Ritter and Williams, whose life is turned upside-down when a plane mysteriously crashes through their roof on Valentine’s Day. The passengers on the downed aircraft, who shake up the couple’s life, are an eccentric Texan millionaire (Christopher Lloyd) and his Vegas dancer girlfriend (Yasmine Bleeth).

“Hidden Agenda” currently is shooting in Toronto, and the production will relocate to Berlin for 10 days of lensing in a couple of weeks. Kevin Dillon stars as a medical student who is pulled into the deadly world of spies in Berlin when he begins looking into the death of his brother.

The cast also includes Andrea Roth, J.T. Walsh, Michael Wincott, and Christopher Plummer.

Pic is written and directed by Iain Paterson, produced by Adam Shully and executive produced by Fremes.

Le Monde has upped its annual slate to five to eight pics, and the indie player will have three titles world preeming at the upcoming AFM, “Airborne” with Steve Guttenberg, “Devil in the Flesh” (formerly “Dearly Devoted”) starring Rose McGowan and Alex McArthur, and the family action-adventure, “Mowgli’s First Adventure,” inspired by Rudyard Kipling’s “Jungle Book” stories.
