'Capital' stars Gabriel Byrne, Gad Elmaleh

Four days before Costa-Gavras’ “Capital” screens as a special presentation at the Toronto Intl. Film Festival, Cohen Media Group has acquired the latest political thriller from the Greek-born helmer of “Z” and “Missing” for U.S. distribution.

Starring Gabriel Byrne and Gad Elmaleh (“Midnight In Paris”), “Capital” — in both English and French — is adapted from Stephane Osmont ‘s 2004 novel “Le Capital” and co-scripted by Costa-Gavras and Jean Claude Grunberg. Story turns on the CEO of one of France’s biggest banks who dies suddenly, and a young up-and-comer (Elmaleh) who is chosen to replace him and becomes the target of a scheming investor (Byrne).

Michele Ray-Gavras produces through KG Prods.

Cohen Media Group announced last month that it was teaming with Focus World for the U.S. and Canadian release of Ziad Doueiri’s “The Attack” next year. “The Attack” will world preem at the Toronto Film Festival.

Charles Cohen launched Cohen Media in 2008 and served as an exec producer on “Frozen River.” Projects released include “Farewell My Queen,” “The Awakening,” “Madoff,” “My Afternoons With Margueritte” and “Oranges and Sunshine.”

 The deal for “Capital” was negotiated by Cohen and Adeline Fontan of Elle Driver.
