‘Rust and Bone’ to Sony Pictures Classics

Pic stars Marion Cotillard, Matthias Schoenarts

Sony Pictures Classics has acquired North American, Latin American and Eastern European rights to Jacques Audiard’s romance-suspenser “Rust & Bone,” which recently wrapped production.

“Rust” stars Marion Cotillard and Matthias Schoenarts and is produced by Pascal Caucheteux. The film was co-written by Audiard and Thomas Bidegain — who teamed on 2009’s “A Prophet” — and adapted from the book of short stories by Craig Davidson.

Pic was budgeted at $22 million, making it one of the biggest films coming out of France last year. Celine Sallette (“House of Tolerance”) and Bouli Lanners (“Nothing to Declare”) co-star.

“A Prophet” took the Cannes Festival’s Special Jury Prize in 2009. Hengameh Panahi’s Celluloid Dreams, which sold and co-produced “A Prophet,” sold “Rust & Bone” to Sony Classics.

Caucheteux’s credits include Audiard’s “The Beat That My Heart Skipped” and “A Prophet,” as well as “Of Gods and Men” and “Assault on Precinct 13.”

UGC is distribbing in France. In pre-sales, “Rust” has been licensed to Studiocanal for the U.K,, Bim Distribuzione for Italy and Lumiere for the Benelux territories.
