AFM: Indie Sales Launches ‘Romulus and Remus,”Gangsta,”Paris Pigalle’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Paris-based company Indie Sales is rolling into AFM with a slate headlined by Matteo Rovere’s “Romulus and Remus, The First King,” Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah’s “Gangsta” and Cédric Anger’s “Paris Pigalle.”

“Paris Pigalle” follows an undercover investigation of the 80s Parisian porn industry. The movie stars Guillaume Canet, Gilles Lellouche, Michel Fau  and Xavier Beauvois.

The movie is produced by Anne Rapczyk for Sunrise Films (Anger’s 2014 feature “Next Time I’ll Aim for the Heart”), Olivier Delbosc (“Let the Sunshine In”) for Curiosa Films. Mars Films and Umedia are co-producing. Mars Film will release the film in France in 2018.

“Romulus and Remus, the First King” centers on the journey of the two legendary brothers who created the Roman empire.

The movie will topline Alessandro Borghi, who starred in “Suburra,” both the Netflix series and the film. The pic will shoot in Proto-Italic language, the ancestor of Latin.

Rovere’s credits includes “Italian Race,” which grossed more than 2.4 million euros ($3.1 million) in Italy and won six David di Donatello Awards.

The Italian release of “Romulus and Remus, the First King” will be handled by 01 Distribuzione in 2018.

At the AFM, Indie Sales is also tubthumping Ziad Doueiri’s “The Insult,” which is repping Lebanon in the foreign language Oscar race and will be released by Cohen Media in the US. Indie Sales is also shopping the Russian 3D space pic “Salyut-7.”
