Adele Exarchopoulos, Matthias Schoenaerts Star in Drama ‘The Faithful’

Adele Exarchopoulos (“Blue Is the Warmest Color”) will star opposite Matthias Schoenaerts in Michael R. Roskam’s “The Faithful,” a noirish romance thriller set against the backdrop of crime gangs in Brussels.

Wild Bunch has come on board to take international sales while Pathe will handle distribution in France. Pierre-Ange Le Pogam’s Stone Angels is producing with Bart Van Langendonck’s Savage Films, who produced Belgian helmer’s Oscar-nominated “Bullhead.”

Although the plot of the film remains under wraps, the glamorous onscreen couple formed by Exarchopoulos and Schoenaerts and the track-record of Roskam will likely spark buyers’ anticipation for the project, which will start shooting next year.

“The Faithful” is penned by Thomas Bidegain (“A Prophet”) and Noe Debre, the screenwriters behind Jacques Audiard’s Palme-d’Or winning “Dheepan.” Debre’s recent credits include “The Cowboys,” which marks Bidegain’s directorial debut and screens in Toronto.

Roskam made his English-language debut with 2014’s “The Drop,” starring Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace and the late James Gandolfini.

Savage Films has Robin Pront’s feature “The Ardennes” playing in Toronto’s Discovery section.
