‘Cash’ attracts Reno and Dujardin

Pulsar makes debut

CANNES — France’s two hottest Jeans — Reno and Dujardin — were on the Croisette Friday touting their new $20 million pic together “Cash.”

Movie, being pitched by sales agent TF1 Intl. as a sophisticated comedy actioner in the vein of “Ocean’s Eleven” or “The Thomas Crown Affair,” began shooting on the Riviera 10 days ago.

Two thesps play the heads of rival criminal gangs, while Valeria Golino plays a cop chief trying to stop their antics. Leggy blonde Alice Taglioni co-stars.

It is being helmed by vet scribe Eric Besnard, whose writing credits include Mathieu Kassovitz’s upcoming “Babylon A.D.”

“Cash” is the first film to come out of former Gaumont managing director Patrice Ledoux’s new indie shingle Pulsar. Ledoux said he has a pic in the works with Gaumont, “My Daughter’s 14,” with Daniel Auteuil.
