French kiss for U.S.

Dumont comes to 'The End'

Gallic helmer Bruno Dumont is training his sights on the U.S. once more with his new project.

Dumont, who has the Iraq-inspired “Flanders” (Flandres) in competition, is casting for Los Angeles-set cop thriller “The End.” Helmer wrote the script in English to help attract a Hollywood star.

“Today in every way there is a desire for all things American. This is something I want to analyze. I want to give back to the U.S. the pictures they send us. There is a desire for change after everything America has diffused to us,” said Dumont.

“Flanders” is sure to cause controversy like Dumont’s previous pic “Twentynine Palms,” which offered a negative view of the U.S.

Never one to shy from a debate, Dumont criticizes the U.S.-led war in Iraq with “Flanders.” Desert scenes were shot in Morocco.

“Iraq is an expression of the modern war. I don’t want to pick a fight with the U.S.. but I’m interested in audiences around the world, not just America,” added Dumont.
