French festival crowns Gray

Helmer honored at Beaune Intl. Thriller Film Festival

New York-born director, screenwriter and producer James Gray will receive a tribute at Gaul’s second Beaune Intl. Thriller Film Festival.

The homage builds on Gray’s close relationship with France, where his Gotham-set crime mellers “Little Odessa,” “The Yards” and “We Own the Night” have given him a cult following.

Produced by 2029 Prods. and co-financed and co-sold by France’s Wild Bunch, Gray’s last film, “Two Lovers,” with his regular lead Joaquin Phoenix and Gwyneth Paltrow, competed at Cannes in 2008.

Gray will deliver a master class April 10. His tribute is framed in a larger focus on New York City noir.

Festival’s film jury prexy will be French helmer Olivier Marchal, known for his own triptych of dark crime dramas “MR 73,” “Gangsters” and “36 Quai des Orfevres.”

Taking place in the capital of the Bourgogne wine region, fest runs April 8-11.
