AFM: Gaumont Inks Big Deals 'Our

French major Gaumont has inked territory sales on Rose Bosch’s “Our Summer in Provence,” a ’70s-set family dramedy starring Jean Reno.

“Provence” has sold to Concorde (Germany), Alpha Filmes (Brazil) and Victory (Benelux) based on its script.

Concorde has picked up several of Gaumont’s films. It recently acquired Guillaume Gallienne’s “Me, Myself and Mum” from the French company.

Gaumont’s international sales team is currently shopping the film, with the first images from the lensing, at the AFM, and is in negotiations to close further deals.

Exploring family ties and clash of generations, “Provence” turns on two teens and their younger brother who are forced to spend their summer vacation with their estranged grandfather (Reno) in the South of France, following their parents’ split.

Produced by Alain Goldman’s Legende, “Provence” lensed on location in the South of France and will be released April 2 in Gaul.

Bosch’s latest film, the WWII-set “The Round-up,” sold to nearly all key territories and grossed $25.3 million worldwide.
