Gallic pair join forces on ‘Deux’

Gaumont, MNP find place in 'Mondes'

Gaumont and Mathieu Kassovitz’ MNP will co-produce the E18 million ($23 million) “Les Deux Mondes,” a comedy starring Benoit Poelvoorde that will start lensing in January.

Pic helmed by Daniel Cohen is a time-travel fantasy in which a humble French tradesman, played by Poelvoorde, achieves hero status by liberating an oppressed tribe in another world.

Pic is slated to come out in France Dec. 12, 2007.

Kassovitz next will shoot Fox’s English-language actioner “Babylon A.D.,” pitched by the helmer as a “Bladerunner” style futuristic thriller, slated for a 2007 release.

MNP, the company set up by Kassovitz and partner Benoit Jaubert, produced out of competition at Cannes-selected “Avida.”
