Toronto: Sales Launch on Diane Lane’s ‘Bonjour Anne’

American Zoetrope and Lifetime Films have wrapped production in southern France on “Bonjour Anne,” starring Diane Lane, Arnaud Viard  and Alec Baldwin.

Sales are launching at the Toronto Film Festival with ICM Partners representing the North American rights and Protagonist Pictures handling international territories.

“Bonjour Anne” is targeted toward a festival premiere and theatrical release in 2016. The film is Eleanor Coppola’s scripted directorial debut; she directed the documentary “Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker’s Apocalypse.”

Coppola also wrote the script, which follows a woman  at a crossroads in her life — in a long marriage with a driven, successful, inattentive movie producer — who suddenly finds herself taking an unexpected car trip from Cannes to Paris with her husband’s business associate. The drive becomes a two day carefree journey replete with diversions involving picturesque sites, fine food and wine, humor, wisdom and romance.

Lane has starred in four other American Zoetrope titles — “The Outsiders,” “Rumble Fish,” ” Jack” and “The Cotton Club.”

Coppola is producing “Bonjour Anne” with longtime collaborator Fred Roos. American Zoetrope and Lifetime Films are the production companies in association with A+E Studios; the  movie is also financed by Corner Piece Capital. Executive producers are Molly Thompson of A+E Studios and Lisa Hamilton Daly, Rob Sharenow and Tanya Lopez for Lifetime Films.

Tohokushinsha Film Corporation will continue its longstanding relationship with American Zoetrope and invest in the film, acquiring distribution rights in Japan and other Asian territories.
