Lionsgate sets Haggis for ‘Days’

Filmmaker to write, direct 'Pour Elle' remake

Lionsgate is teaming with filmmaker Paul Haggis on the thriller “The Next Three Days,” an adaptation of the French film “Pour elle.”

The mini-major said Tuesday that it has acquired remake rights to “Pour elle” from Wild Bunch and Fidelite Films.

Haggis will direct, write and produce “Next Three Days,” which centers on an ordinary couple who find themselves in an unthinkable situation and have to make desperate choices that will test the limits of love.

It’s Lionsgate’s first collaboration with Haggis since “Crash,” for which he received Academy Awards for motion picture and original screenplay along with a director nom.

Haggis and Michael Nozik will produce “The Next Three Days” through their production entity Highway 61 Films, along with Marc Missonnier and Olivier Delbosc of Fidelite Films. Principal photography is expected to begin in August.

Project was brought to Highway 61 by its new head of development, Eugenie Grandval.

Haggis’ most recent project was “In the Valley of Elah,” which he produced, directed and adapted.
