Company teams with Anonymous Content on thriller

Vendome Pictures has come onboard with Anonymous Content to produce thriller “Bastille Day,” written by Andrew Baldwin and to be directed by Pierre Morel.

Anonymous Content developed the project with Baldwin, bringing it to Vendome, which preemptively acquired the material on spec before it became available to all buyers.

Vendome Pictures CEO Philippe Rousselet will produce the project along with Anonymous Content’s Steve Golin, Bard Dorros and David Kanter. Vendome will fully finance the production.

“Bastille Day” centers on a young American artist living in Paris and a washed-up CIA agent who together are tasked with diverting an imminent attack on the city.

Baldwin’s recent credits include “The Outsider,” which is in pre-production at Warner Bros., with Daniel Espinosa attached to direct, and “Logan’s Run” for Warner Bros., with Nicolas Winding Refn attached to direct and Ryan Gosling to star.

Morel directed “Taken” and “District B13.” He is currently directing ABC’s television pilot “Zero Hour” for producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura.

Vendome production prexy Guy Stodel and VP Sarah Schweitzman will oversee the project on behalf of Vendome.

Baldwin is represented by CAA and Anonymous Content. Morel is represented by CAA, Sentient Entertainment and Hansen, Jacobson.
