Pic is one of six entries unspooling at Unifrance

Wild Bunch will co-finance $30 million actioner “The Burma Conspiracy,” helmer-scribe Jerome Salle’s follow-up to “Largo Winch” (2008), one of six pics it’s unspooling at the Unifrance Rendez-Vous, the French cinema showcase that kicked off Wednesday.

In “Conspiracy,” primarily in English, Tomer Sisley reprises his role as billionaire Winch. He is accused of crimes against humanity and must travel to Myanmar to prove his innocence.

Currently casting, “Conspiracy” will shoot this summer. It will be produced by Nathalie Gastaldo and Philippe Godeau for France’s Pan-Europeenne and by Wild Bunch Germany. Wild Bunch will take French distribution and international sales.

Beyond “Conspiracy,” Wild Bunch has taken international on another substantial proposition, “The Clink of Ice,” a dark comedy from Bertrand Blier starring Jean Dujardin (“OSS 177: Cairo, Nest of Spies”) as an alcoholic writer.

Some 73 French films, including 40 market preems, will be touted at the Rendez-Vous, which opened with a gala screening of “Oceans,” Pathe’s big-budget docu from Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud.

“The market’s looking for audience pleasers, happy movies,” said Wild Bunch’s Gael Nouaille.
