Cohen takes Trueba

CMG plans '13 U.S. release for 'Artist'

EXCLUSIVE: Cohen Media Group has acquired North American rights to “The Artist and the Model” from Spain’s Fernando Trueba, an Academy Award winner with “Belle Epoque” and nominee in 2012 for “Chico and Rita.”

Starring Jean Rochefort, Claudia Cardinale and Aida Folch, the 6 Sales-sold “Model” receives a Toronto market screening Tuesday before playing main competition at late September’s San Sebastian Festival.

Trueba and Jean-Claude Carriere (“The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie,” “Cyrano de Bergerac”) wrote “Model.” Pic turns on an aging sculptor (Rochefort) seeking final inspiration in WWII-torn southern France. He finds it in a ravishing young girl (Folch), who has escaped from a Spanish refugee camp.

Produced by Cristina Huete and shot largely in French, “Model” has already closed a rights deal for France with Bac Films.

Cohen Media Group plans a U.S. theatrical release for 2013.
