Indie Sales Picks Up Quentin Dupieux’s ‘Reality’

Indie Sales will unveil a promo at Berlin's EFM

Nicolas Eschbach’s Indie Sales has boarded French musician-turned-helmer Quentin Dupieux’s comedy “Reality.”

“Reality” toplines Chabat (“Houba! On the Trail of the Marsupilami”), John Heder (“Napoleon Dynamite”), Elodie Bouchez (“Happy Few”) and Jonathan Lambert (“Love Lasts Three Years”). It’s produced by Gregory Bernard at Realitism Films.

Shot in Los Angeles in French and English, “Reality” is described by Indie Sales as an “examination of three degrees of reality” intertwining the journeys of a trio: an eight-year-old girl who finds a mysterious VHS, Jason, a failed filmmaker shooting his first horror movie, and Denis, a culinary TV host who loses his self-confidence because of an imaginary skin disease.

As with other Dupieux movies, music plays an important role in “Reality,” which boasts a score by Philip Glass from his 1971 album “Music With Changing Parts.”

Naomi Denamur, who joined Indie Sales from Le Pacte last fall, said the company will unveil a promo of “Reality” at Berlin’s EFM market.

Diaphana will release the film in France. Pic will be delivered in the spring.

Dupieux’s last film, “Wrong Cops,” debuted at Sundance and was recently acquired by IFC Midnight.
