Cohen Media Group takes ‘Delicatesse’

U.S. distribs also buys StudioCanal's 'Prey'

The Cohen Media Group has acquired U.S. rights to two titles from StudioCanal: “La Delicatesse” and “The Prey.”

Romance “Delicatesse” stars Audrey Tautou. Film marks the directorial debut of young French novelist David Foenkinos, who co-wrote and co-directs with brother Stephane Foenkinos, a screenwriter.

“Delicatesse” is lead-produced by Paris-based 2.4.7 Films. StudioCanal is co-producing, distributing in France and selling “Delicatesse” worldwide.

CMG will open “Delicatesse” in a minimum 30 top U.S. markets.

The “Delicatesse” pre-sale — it opens Dec. 21 in France — is its 15th territory pre-sale with no footage yet available, said StudioCanal’s Harold Van Lier, exec VP of international sales.

Action-thriller “Prey,” directed by Eric Valette (“State Affairs”), stars Albert Dupontel (“A Very Long Engagement”), Alice Taglioni (“The Valet”), Stephane Debac (“The Happening”) and Sergi Lopez (“Pan’s Labyrinth”).

The deal was negotiated directly between Charles Cohen and Van Lier in Cannes.
