Catherine Deneuve, Harvey Keitel set for romance film

Untitled tale centers on late-in-life love in L.A.

Catherine Deneuve and Harvey Keitel are set to play late-blooming lovers in an untitled romantic drama helmed by first-timer Robert Cantarella, a French vet theater director and playwrite.

France’s Les Films d’Ici, which achieved international recognition with “Waltz With Bashir,” is producing with Germany’s Cine Plus.

Paris-based Haut et Court, the arthouse shingle behind Laurent Cantet’s The Class” and Audrey Tautou starrer “Coco Before Chanel,” has come on board to distribute the film in Gaul.

Deneuve will topline as a retired divorcee who decides to break away from her tranquil existence in Brussels and start a new life in Los Angeles with her 30-something b.f.. But after the young man gets killed, she decides to move by herself to L.A., where she becomes a waitress and meets Keitel’s character, with whom she starts a passionate relationship.

Les Films d’Ici producer Charlotte Uzu described the pic as “uplifting and rock ‘n’ roll.”

Deneuve decides to take command of her own life and we see her getting younger and livening up as the film unfolds,” said Uzu.

Lensing is expected to kick off next fall. The €5 million ($6.4 million) pic will shoot on location in Brussels and Los Angeles.
