PARIS — French model-turned-thesp Laetitia Casta (“Gainsbourg”) will topline “Behind the Walls,” a 3D low-budget suspenser directed by Pascal Sid and Julien Lacombe.

“Walls” is produced by Paris-based Sombrero Films’ Alain Benguigui and Thomas Verhaeghe, via their new label Studio Mad, which is dedicated to genre films.

The $5 million pic will be distribbed by Bac Films during the first trimester of 2011.
