Goldman launches Legende in L.A.

Nancy Griffin named president of production

“La Vie en rose” producer Alain Goldman has expanded operations into the U.S. by launching Legende Films in Los Angeles as a subsidiary of his Paris-based production house Legende.

Goldman has tapped former journalist Nancy Griffin as prexy of development and production.

“We have been growing the company with the intention of developing more films for the international market, and the moment is right to establish ourselves in the U.S.,” Goldman said.

Goldman recently entered into a financial partnership with French investment company Serendipity, which now holds 35% of Legende. It’s also extended its worldwide distribution deal, excluding the U.S., with StudioCanal.

Legende launched in 1992 with “1492,” co-produced “Casino” with Universal and TF1, and produced Roland Joffe’s “Vatel,” “The Crimson Rivers” and its sequel, “L’Enquete corse” and “99 Francs.” It’s completed production on “Babylon AD” for Fox and StudioCanal.
