‘Bloomers’ in the Bureau’s files

Shooting starts March 18 on Hurt-Rossellini starrer

London-based the Bureau is producing Julie Gavras’ romantic comedy “Late Bloomers” with France’s Gaumont and Sylvie Pialat’s Les Film du Worso.

Structured as a three-way France-U.K.-Belgium co-production, “Bloomers” is co-produced by Belgium’s Be-Films.

Gaumont is financing “Bloomers” against worldwide rights. Gallic paybox giant Canal Plus has taken French pay TV rights; “Bloomers” has also pulled down U.K. and Belgian tax coin.

Shooting March 18 in North London, English-language “Bloomers” stars William Hurt and Isabella Rossellini as a fiftysomething married couple facing the passage of years.

“This is a love story and a comedy aimed at mature audiences,” said the Bureau’s Bertrand Faivre.

As a director-driven film by a distinctive director with wider audience potential, “Bloomers” typifies the Bureau’s slate.

Additional Bureau productions include Rachid Bouchareb’s “London River,” Alexis Dos Santos’ “Unmade Beds,” Asif Kapadia’s “Far North” and Christian Carion’s “Merry Christmas.”

“The Bureau produces young and promising directors from the U.K., France and beyond with an international audience in mind,” Faivre said.
