Indie Sales Nabs Baya Kasmi ‘I’m All Yours’ (EXCLUSIVE)

PARIS– Nicolas Eschbach’s Indie Sales has acquired international sales to French comedy “I’m All Yours,” Baya Kasmi and Michel Leclerc’s follow up to hit racy laffer “The Names of Love.”

Directed by Kasmi, pic will topline French newcomer Vimala Pons (“The July 14 Girl”) as Hanna, a free-spirited human resources manager who has a habit of sleeping with every man she fires — until she falls in love with a man who thinks she’s a prostitute.  The daughter of an Algerian grocer, Hanna sees the world differently from her brother, a practicing Muslim whom she considers intolerant.

Pons will star opposite well-known thesps Agnès Jaouï (“Look At Me,” “The Taste Of Others”) and Ramzy Bedia (“Lucky Luke and the Daltons”).

Indie Sales will start pre-selling the project with the script at the Unifrance Rendez-Vous in Paris which kicks off Jan. 15.

Penned by Kasmi and Leclerc, “I’m All Yours” follows the “same comedic recipe” as “The Names of Love” said Eschbach, who sold “The Names of Love” worldwide when he was running TF1 International. “I’m All Yours’ not just hilarious, it’s also meant to address cultural differences and give us a glimpse of today’s French society,” added Eschbach.

“The Names of Love” turned on a self-proclaimed “political whore” who sleeps with right-wingers to convert them. It opened Critics’ Week in 2010 and earned its star Sara Forestier a Cesar for best newcomer.

“I’m All Yours” boasts a key crew including cinematographer Guillaume Deffontaines (“Camille Claudel 1915”, “All That Glitters”)

Pic is produced by Karé productions (“The Names Of Love,” “The Dandelions”) and will be delivered in 2015.
