Studiocanal Brings ‘Lou’ to Bigscreen

Studiocanal is set to co-produce, distribute and sell "Lou"

Studiocanal has come on board to co-produce, distribute and sell  “Lou! le journal infime,” the bigscreen adaptation of the popular comicbook “Lou.”

First-timer Julien Neel will direct the live-action film, which is set to topline Ludivine Sagnier (“Mesrine”), Kyan Khojandi (“So”) and Nathalie Baye (“Queens of the Ring”).  Published by Glenat Editions,  “Lou” has traveled to 19 countries.  An estimated 2 million prints have been sold.

The comic book turns on Lou, a 12-year old tweener who lives alone with her dedicated mother, Emma, with whom she shares a strong bond. Their lives are turned upside down when Emma starts dating again and Lou kisses a boy for the first time.  Marc Syrigas co-wrote the adaptation.

Project is part of Studiocanal’s building slate of family-skewed films and toons, which includes David-Heyman produced “Paddington,” Ben Stassen’s “The House of Magic.” It’s not Studiocanal’s first comicbook adaptation: the company previously co-produced “Billy and Buddy,” based on “Boule et Bill.”

Bruno Levy at Move Movie is producing “Lou” with Harold Valentin at Mother Production.

The three-month shoot will begin on Oct. 28 in Paris and at the Bry-sur-Marne studios.
