Keitel, Sorvino, Dafoe star in jazz pic

NEW YORK – On the eve of the Cannes Film Festival, Behaviour Communications pre-emptively acquired the Canadian rights to Paul Auster’s solo directorial debut “Lulu on the Bridge” from London’s Capitol Films.

The only major territories still remaining for “Lulu,” which opens Un Certain Regard at the Cannes fest, are the U.S. and the U.K.

Written and directed by Paul, “Lulu” stars Harvey Keitel, Mira Sorvino and Willem Dafoe. Pic tells the story of a jazz musician whose life changes after he is shot during a performance.
