Teodora boards Ozon’s ‘Ricky’

Film is about child with special powers

Italy’s Teodora Film has boarded Gallic helmer Francois Ozon’s “Ricky,” about a child with supernatural powers, which is set to start shooting in Paris this month.

Teodora, the arthouse shingle headed by Vieri Razzini that released Ozon’s last pic “Angel,” is co-producing “Ricky” having taken a 10% stake in the pic from Le Pact, the production and sales boutique set up recently by former Bac Film topper Jean Labadie.

Sergi Lopez (“Pan’s Labyrinth”) and Alexandra Lamy (“Brice de Nice”) will play the ordinary parents of the extraordinary child in this genre-fusing film, which Ozon has said will mix thriller, horror, sci-fi, comedy and fairy tale elements.

“Ricky” is being produced by Chris Bolzi’s Eurowide Film Production in association with Paris and Los Angeles-based effects house BUF, whose recent credits include “Asterix at the Olympic Games” and “Spider-Man 3.”

Shoot is set to start Feb. 25.
