Seydoux

CEO

Seydoux is now in his late 80s, but he’s still placing big bets as head of the venerable French prodco and exhibitor Pathé, backing the biggest film project to be shot in France in the past year, director Martin Bourboulon’s (“Eiffel”) two-part take on Alexandre Dumas’ oft-adapted adventure novel — “The Three Musketeers: D’Artagnan” and “The Three Musketeers: Milady,” budgeted at $85 million. The company is also behind the second-biggest France-shot production in recent months, director Guillaume Canet’s $70 million live-action comic book adaptation “Asterix & Obelix: The Silk Road,” which was moved from its planned Chinese location due to the pandemic. Seydoux is personally producing Jean-Jacques Annaud’s “Notre Dame on Fire,” an epic drama about the 2019 blaze at the iconic cathedral, due in 2022.
