Charles Gillibert, RT Features to Produce Abbas Kiarostami’s ’24 Frames’

RT Features is joining forces with Charles Gillibert’s CG Cinema to finance and co-produce Abbas Kiarostami’s “24 Frames.”

Pic will mark the Iranian helmer’s followup to “Like Someone in Love,” a 2012 Cannes competition title.

Although the plot is currently being kept under wraps, Kiarostami previously said the experimental project would be based on 24 four-and-a-half minute films that he has been directing over the last three years. A segment of the was shown at the Lumiere festival for the tribute to Martin Scorsese.

Kiarostami is producing with Charles Gillibert, whose credits include Deniz Erguven’s “Mustang,” and RT Features’ Rodrigo Teixeira, and will be released at the end of the year or early 2017. CG Cinema has the Kirsten-Stewart starrer “Personal Shopper,” from Olivier Assayas, in Cannes competition.

“I’m truly honored to be working with one of cinema’s greatest. Kiarostami’s films have always inspired me. This is a very special project and I’m thrilled to be partnering with Charles, his work in recent years is impressive,” said Teixeira.

RT Features has been producing films and TV series in Brazil since 2005 and ventured into the U.S. market in 2008, financing pics like Noah Baumbach’s “Frances Ha” and Robert Eggers’ “The Witch.” RT’s slate includes “The Games of 1940,” written by David Seidler (“The King’s Speech”). RT Features is currently working on a feature film adaptation of Bob Dylan’s classic album “Blood on the Tracks.”
