‘A Bigger Splash’ and ‘We Are Your Friends’ Headline Studiocanal’s Glam Toronto Slate

HAUGESUND, Norway– European powerhouse Studiocanal will roll into Toronto with a glam slate of cast-driven, English-language titles led by Luca Guadagnino’s sexy psychological thriller “A Bigger Splash” (Working Title)  and Max Joseph’s coming-of-age drama “We Are Your Friends.”

Wes Bentley has joined Zac Efron and Emily Ratajkowski (“Gone Girl”) in “We Are Your Friends,” a chronicle of a 23-year-old aspiring DJ who tries to find his voice in the electro music scene and bonds with an older DJ. Working Title is producing the film, which is shooting.

Meanwhile, “Fifty Shades of Grey” star Dakota Johnson has joined the cast of “A Bigger Splash,” an edgy and contempo twist on the cult Alain Delon-Romy Schneider starrer  “La Piscine.” Johnson will play opposite Tilda Swinton, Ralph Fiennes and Matthias Schoenaerts.

“Splash” centers on a glamorous couple whose holiday in Southern Italy takes an unexpected turn with the visit from an old friend and his luscious daughter.

Studiocanal will also be selling Brian Helgeland’s “Legend” with Tom Hardy, James Watkins’ action thriller “Bastille Day” with Idris Elba and Adele Exarchopoulos as well as Tobias Lindholm’s drama “A War.”

Also on the Paris-based company’s roaster: Ewan McGregor starrer “Our Kind of Traitor”; “Macbeth” with Marion Cotillard and Michael Fassbender; “The Gunman” with Sean Penn and Javier Bardem; and Susanne Bier’s “Serena” with Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, to be released by Studiocanal on Oct. 24 in the U.K.
