Focusing on international sales and its French exhibition circuit, Nathanael Karmitz’s MK2 is linking once more to Olivier Assayas and former MK2 producer Charles Gillibert, selling worldwide Assayas’ English-language debut “Sils Maria,” with Juliette Binoche and Chloe Moretz.
Also repping Jia Zhangke’s competition pic “A Touch of Sin,” (pictured) as it sets up shop at Cannes MK2’s robust pre-sales on two titles — Xavier Dolan’s “Tom at the Farm” and Lisa Langseth’s buzz title “Hotell,” both in post — highlights resilient auteur biz for name auteurs and breakouts.
Co-starring Daniel Bruhl and Tom Sturridge and produced by Gillibert at CG Cinema, “Sils Maria” toplines Binoche as an older actress confronting her aging.
Pic will be released in France by Les Films du Losange.
“Farm” — an adaptation of a Michel Marc Bouchard stage play — has pre-sold over 15 territories. Repping the second pic from Lisa Langseth Hotell has pre-sold 10 territories.
