Berlin: Diane Kruger, Norman Reedus and Lena Dunham to Co-Star in ‘Sky’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Diane Kruger Norman Reedus Lena Dunham

Diane Kruger, Norman Reedus, Lena Dunham and Gilles Lellouche will star in “Sky,” a drama-come-road-movie that unfolds across the U.S. from French helmer Fabienne Berthaud (“Lily Sometimes”).

The English-language pic is produced by Bertrand Faivre’s Le Bureau, based in Paris, with Germany’s Pandora.

The Bureau Sales, the Bureau’s recently launched unit spearheaded by Rym Hachimi and Emmanuelle Le Courtois, will begin shopping the project in Berlin.

Kruger stars as Romy, who goes with her husband (Lellouche) on a trip to California and accidentally kills him during a violent fight. She flees the scene and embarks on a life-changing solo trip across California and Nevada.

“As with Fabienne Berthaud’s previous films, ‘Sky’ is character-driven and has multiple layers: It’s a film about this woman emancipating herself,” said Le Courtois, who recently joined the Bureau Sales after working at Wide Management and the Coproduction Office.

Haut et Court will release “Sky” in France.

The international cast is completed by Q’orianka Kilcher (“The New World”).

Pic, which is now shooting, marks Berthaud’s third feature film. Her latest film, “Lily Sometimes,” played at Directors’ Fortnight in 2010.

Other highlights on Le Bureau Sales’ Berlin roster include Tessa Morgan’s “The Pioneers,” a documentary film that sheds light on the urban subculture that emerged in 1970s from minority communities living the Bronx, N.Y., South Central L.A., as well as the Manila slums and Brazilian favelas.

    Really quite done with Lena. I find her gross on many levels, and her talent is in the eye of the beholder.

  2. Hannah says:

    Would have seen it for Norman, but with Lena’s name attached to it… big nope. A woman who proudly admits she masturbated with her “sister’s sticky muscular little body” in bed with her, bribed her for long kisses on the mouth, or to get her to lay on top of her… was looking at her sister’s vagina when her sister was 3 and “found pebbles in there”. First, she’s a girl, she has her own v-jay-jay if she’s curious, second… I doubt her sister put those pebbles in there on her own. She admitted to being a predator… and she still gets work??? If any male celebrity, no matter how loved, admitted to what surmounts to child abuse in a book, he’d never work again.

  3. Alethea says:

    If Mel Gibson wrote a book detailing the sexual molestation of his little brother, and said he did “basically anything a sexual predator might do to woo a small suburban boy,” and if he was quoted in Rolling Stone Mag as having “forced” his little brother to “make-out” with him when the child was five, and Mel was 12… and if he made false claims of rape, Mel would be shunned from Hollywood.

    Lena Dunham gets a role in a film.

  4. facts says:

    But the operative question is, does anyone want to see Lena Dunham “act”? As in, act in something that she hasn’t written, and that will require her to develop a new on-screen persona? Could be the kiss of death.

  5. dean says:

    Dunham isn’t much of a draw anymore. Her HBO show is close to tanking.
