SND to co-pro ‘Among the Living’

Scare-fare helmers to shoot in spring

LYON, France — SND, the distribution-sales-production arm of France’s M6 Group, will co-produce and handle international sales on genre thriller “Among the Living” from cult Gallic scare-fare directors Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo.

Dimension Films picked up the pair’s previous chillers, “Livid” and “Inside,” for U.S. distribution.

SND, which also co-produced and sold “Livid,” will work on “Living” with Jean-Pierre Putters, Caroline Piras and Fabrice Lambot at Metalune Prods.

“Living” turns on three youngsters who skip school, wander around an abandoned amusement park and suddenly see a woman in chains being dragged through a field by a man in a clown’s mask.

Worse still, the masked man catches a glimpse of the boys.

It stars “Livid” lead Chloe Coulloud, Lannick Gautry and Francis Renaud.

Beatrice Dalle, the scissor-wielding maniac of the duo’s debut “Inside” who also appeared in “Livid,” will have a cameo role. Further cast will be announced shortly.

Shoot takes place in south-west France in spring.

Lionel Uzan, SND director of acquisitions and international sales, describes “Living” as a “Stephen King-like story at the crossroads between ‘Stand By Me’ and ‘It.’ ”

SND will introduce “Living” to buyers at the American Film Market where it will also screen show-reels of Joel Hopkins’ “The Love Punch,” with Pierce Brosnan and Emma Thompson, and “The Informant.”

Written by Abdel Raouf Dafri (“A Prophet,” “Mesrine”) and directed by Julien Leclercq, “The Informant” stars Gilles Lellouche (“Point Blank”), Ricardo Scamarcio (“Romanzo criminale”) and Tahar Rahim (“A Prophet”).
