Cannes: Berenice Bejo to Star in New Drama (EXCLUSIVE)

Berenice Bejo will star in Belgian helmer Joachim Lafosse’s “L’economie d’un couple,” a contemporary drama that also stars Marthe Keller. Lafosse’s 2012 film “Our Children” played in Un Certain Regard at Cannes.

The dramedy centers on a middle-class couple with kids who separate and argue over who owns what. Their solution is to continue living under the same roof.

“This subject is so universal and so contemporary. In every society and social class, separations can reveal the worst in human beings and once love is over, money often becomes the crux of the battle,” said Sylvie Pialat, who produces the movie via Les Films du Worso, in co-production with Belgium’s Versus.

Jean Labadie’s Le Pacte has come on board to take international sales and distribution.

Shooting will start on June 8.

Laos’s latest film, “The White Knights,” will likely premiere at a fall festival.
