By ELSA KESLASSY PARIS
Gaumont has inked a multi-title deal with U.S. distributor Olive Films.
Specializing in art pics and foreign fare, Olive Films has acquired 17 remastered classic titles in HD from Gaumont’s library, including Maurice Pialat’s “Police,” Michelangelo Antonioni’s “I Vinti” and Abel Gance’s “J’accuse.” Olive has taken all rights on these pics and plans to release some of them theatrically.
Gaumont owns France’s second-largest film library, boasting more than 900 titles, with films from French and foreign directors including Francis Veber, Jean-Jacques Beineix, Federico Fellini and Jean-Luc Godard.
Gaumont has also closed a U.S. deal with Olive for the theatrical release of romantic comedy “Late Bloomers” in North America. “Bloomers,” which played in competition at Berlin, is Julie Gavras’ follow up to Sundance player “Blame It on Fidel.” Set in London, “Late Bloomers” turns on an aging couple, played by William Hurt and Isabella Rossellini, who separate to put the spark back in their marriage.
Pic has already been picked up by distribs including Palace (Australia), Paradise (CIS), Art Film (Brazil), Shapira (Israel), Weg (India), Lusomundo (Portugal) and Greece (Odeon).
Olive plans to release “Late Bloomers” next year. Deal was negotiated between Cecile Gaget, head of Gaumont Intl. and Farhad Arshad, Olive’s CEO.
Some of Olive’s recent arthouse acquisitions include “Mammuth” and Eva Green starrer “Womb.”
