As CEO of the venerable Pathé, Seydoux is in charge of the leading cinema chain in France, the Netherlands and Switzerland, so one can forgive him for calling 2020, which saw his theaters close due to the pandemic then reopen with limited showtimes, a year to be forgotten. But Seydoux, who turned 86 in September, pressed on with production, taking “Notre Dame on Fire” — a limited series about the 2019 blaze at the iconic cathedral, to be directed by Jean-Jacques Annaud — to the Cannes virtual marketplace in June. It’s the first project under Pathé’s three-year production partnership with Vendôme, announced in 2019. The family-owned Pathé previously produced high-profile English-language pics including “The Queen” and “Slumdog Millionaire” as well as Pedro Almodóvar’s “Pain & Glory.”
