Cannes: Cohen Media Group Nabs North American Rights To ‘Rodin’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Cohen Media Group has acquired North American rights to Jacques Doillon’s “Rodin,” a biopic of Auguste Rodin, the revolutionary 19th-century French sculptor who is best known for “The Thinker.” César winner Vincent Lindon (“The Measure of a Man”) stars as Rodin.

The movie will depict Rodin’s relationship with his life-long partner, Rose Beuret, and tumultuous affair with Camille Claudel, his most apt pupil and muse. The movie opens when Rodin enters one of the most productive periods of his career.

“The remarkable life of Auguste Rodin is finally being told in a film that promises to reveal the man behind so many great works of art. We are thrilled to be along on this journey,” said Charles S. Cohen, Chairman and CEO of Cohen Media Group.

“Rodin” also stars Izia Higelin (“Saint Amour”) and Séverine Caneele (“Humanité”) star.

Pic is currently in production.

The pact was negotiated by Cohen Media Group’s senior VP John Kochman and producer Kristina Larsen for Les Films du Lendemain. Wild Bunch’s Carole Baraton handles international sales on the film.
