Helmer toplines pic featuring Bennett, Fonda, Renner

Chris Blackwell’s Palm Pictures has picked up North American and Caribbean rights to Asia Argento’s “The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things.”

Pic was adapted by scribe JT LeRoy from his own collection of short stories.

Project centers on Jeremiah, a kid pulled from a foster home and thrown into a troubled life on the road with his teen mom.

Chris Hanley and Roberta Hanley of Muse Prods., and Lilly Bright of Curiously Bright Entertainment produced.

Pic stars Jimmy Bennett, Peter Fonda, Jeremy Renner, Argento, Michael Pitt, Kip Pardue, Winona Ryder and Marilyn Manson.

Argento currently appears in this year’s Cannes’ entry “Last Days,” by Gus Van Sant. Leroy penned Van Sant’s 2003 Palme D’Or winner “Elephant.”

Palm plans to break “Heart” in the States later this year.

Deal was sealed at the market where Wild Bunch is handling international sales.
