Vincent Cassel, Romain Duris, Sandrine Kiberlain Boards ‘Fleuve Noir’ (EXCLUSIVE)

A topnotch French cast, including stars Vincent Cassel, Romain Duris (“Heartbreaker”) and Sandrine Kiberlain (“Being 17”), will topline Erick Zonca’s French drama “Fleuve Noir.”

Cassel is one of France’s biggest stars, with films such as Darren Aronofsky’s “Black Swan,” Maiwenn’s “Mon Roi” and the upcoming “Jason Bourne.” In “Fleuve Noir,” Cassel will star as a disillusioned cop who starts investigating the death of a child when his estranged delinquent son walks back into his life.

Films Distribution has taken international sales rights and is co-producing the film, which is being produced by Olivier Delbosc’s Paris-based shingle Curiosa.

“‘Fleuve Noir’ marks our first collaboration with Curiosa and we expect there will be many more to come. Olivier Delbosc and I have known each other for 20 years and we have similar tastes,” said Nicolas Brigaud-Robert, co-founder of Films Distribution, which has three films playing in Cannes: Brillante Mendoza’s competition title “Ma’Rosa,” Delphine & Muriel Coulin’s Un Certain Regard player “The Stopover” and Rithy Panh’s “Exile.”

Films Distribution recently picked up Kim Nguyen’s “Eye On Juliet” and Pablo Berger’s “Abracadabra.”

“Fleuve Noir” has just started shooting.
