EuropaCorp sets ‘Blind’ helmer, cast

Wilson, Gamblin to star in thriller

Lambert Wilson and Jacques Gamblin are attached to star in EuropaCorp thriller “Blind Man,” with Gaul’s Xavier Palud set to direct.

Scripted by writer-director Eric Besnard (“Ca$h”) from an original idea by Luc Besson, “Man” is being produced entirely by Besson’s EuropaCorp, which also holds French distribution and international sales rights.

Cat-and-mouse serial killer thriller goes into production early September in Paris.

Project is being developed through EuropaCorp’s We- AreProducteurs.com crowd-producing initiative, launched in 2010 by EuropaCorp and Gallic telco Orange, which allows a Web community to choose between different story scenarios, vote on a wishlist cast and pose questions to key creative talent and a committee of experts — including directors Eric Lartigau, Olivier Megaton and actor-helmer Gilles Lellouche.

Palud’s third feature has Gamblin as a solitary cop investigating a cold case. He suspects that a blind man (Wilson) is the killer, sparking a battle of wits.

Palud co-helmed Jessica Alba starrer “The Eye” and French chiller hit “Them.” Last year, he was tapped to direct an episode in the EuropaCorp-produced TV series “XIII” — an example of synergies between the company’s burgeoning TV division, EuropaCorp TV, and its core theatrical film production-distribution biz.
