Kassovitz and Byrne to star in Costa Gavras’s Le Capital


Kassovitz and Byrne to star in Costa Gavras’s Le Capital

Filmmaker Costa Gavras and Mathieu Kassovitz are set to re-team after enjoying success with Amen in 2002. Kassovitz will play the lead role in Le Capital, which is adapted from Stéphane Osmont’s homonymous satirical novel offering a savage portrayal of the boss of Europe’s biggest bank.

Recently selected by the advance on receipts committee of the National Film and Moving Image Centre (CNC) (see news), the project piloted by KG Productions will also feature Irish star Gabriel Byrne (who rose to fame with roles in Miller’s Crossing and The Usual Suspects, among other films, and won a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a TV Series in 2009 for In Treatment). Although at one point tipped to star, Vincent Cassel will not appear in the film whose shoot will kick off in late September.

Kassovitz, who has just filmed Sylvie Testud’s French/Belgian/Luxembourg co-production La Vie d’Une Autre (“The Life of Another”, see news) alongside Juliette Binoche, will also appear in his self-directed film Rebellion, to be released in France on September 21.
