Jeunet lands Gallic honor

Legion d'Honneur also fetes pubcaster topper Tessier

Gallic helmer Jean-Pierre Jeunet has been made a member of the Legion d’Honneur, along with several other media figures named Sunday in France’s New Year’s presidential honors list.

Jeunet, whose “Amelie” became one of French cinema’s most successful exports, received a Chevalier medal, as did Marc Tessier, ex-topper of pubcaster group France Televisions.

Michele Cotta, the former director of pubcaster France 2, and TF1 news chief Robert Namias were upped to the rank of officer.

Jeunet is working on Fox 2000’s adaptation of the Man Booker prize-winning novel “The Life of Pi” by Yann Martel. Jeunet and scriptwriting partner Guillaume Laurant are penning the adaptation.
