La Fabrique lines up ‘Livid’

Maury, Bustillo make English-language debut

Paris-based La Fabrique de Films will produce “Livid,” the next film from Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo (“Inside”). Marking the duo’s English-language debut, “Livid” is skedded for a September shoot in Ireland.

Headed by Verane Frediani and Franck Ribiere, La Fabrique has also taken Gallic distribution rights. Overlook Entertainment, Fabrique’s foreign sales agent, will handle international sales. Frediani and Ribiere will produce.

Billed as a “dark romantic fairy tale,” “Livid” turns on three young men who decide to rob an elderly woman’s house in the Irish heathlands.

Maury and Bustillo have completed the screenplay. “Inside” DP Laurent Bares will repeat as cinematographer.

Budgeted at $8.5 million, “Livid” continues Fabrique’s line in competitively priced, low-budget genre films. Pic also looks set to be structured as a France-Ireland co-production. “Livid” will be ready for delivery in spring 2010.

Cannes 2007 Critics’ Week player “Inside,” also produced by La Fabrique, proved one of this decade’s most notable genre debuts, selling to the Weinstein Co. for the U.S. and U.K. and to over 40 countries. Some auds found it stomach-churning, however. “Livid” looks likely to pull back on the physical violence.

At Cannes, Overlook will screen a promo reel of Frank Richards’ “The Pack.” The French-language ghoul tale toplines Emilie Duquenne (“Rosetta”), Benjamin Biolay (“Stella”) and this year’s Cesar winner actress Yolande Moreau (“Seraphine”).
