Paul Haggis’ new pic, “Third Person” is scoring brisk biz for Belgian production and sales company Corsan, which has announced sales to 23 markets of the triple-tiered relationship drama with an ensemble cast comprising Mila Kunis, Liam Neeson, Adrien Brody, James Franco, Olivia Wilde and Kim Basinger.
Sales on “Third,” which previously shopped at Toronto and Berlin, now include China (HGC Ent.), Russia (Top Film), India (One World), France (Synergy), Japan (Presidio), Latin America (Playarte) and Middle East (Eagle).
Pic, now in post, had been pre-sold to Italy’s Moviemax Media Group during last year’s Toronto Film Festival, just before the start of shooting at Rome’s Cinecitta studios, where it tapped into Italo rebates.
Fully financed through Corsan, which has a business model based on Belgian tax breaks, “Third Person” interweaves three separate love stories in three cities: Rome, Paris, and New York.
