Tahar Rahim, Stacy Martin to Topline ‘Joueurs’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Tahar Rahim (“The Past,” “A Prophet”) and Stacy Martin (“Nymphomaniac,” “Redoutables”) are starring in “Joueurs,” a romance-crime drama that takes place in the clandestine gambling club network.

The film marks the directorial debut of Marie Monge, whose short “Marseille la nuit” was nominated for a Cesar in 2014. Michael Gentile at Paris-based The Film, whose credits include Julie Delpy’s “Lolo,” is producing.

“Joueurs” revolves around the relationship between a gambling addict and a young woman who falls madly in love with him and will stop at nothing to win his heart.

The key crew includes Paul Guilhaume, the cinematographer of “Ava,” which premiered at Cannes Critics’ Week.

The script was penned by Monge, Julien Guetta (“Le petit locataire”) and Romain Compingt, the co-writer of Houda Benyamina’s Golden Camera winning “Divines.”

Gentille said Monge developed the script for three years and did extensive research in underground gambling club networks to depict the characters accurately and give them depth.

Shooting has just started in Paris. Playtime is handling international sales, while Bac Films will distribute the film in France.
