Produced by Sylvie Pialat and Benoît Quainon for Les Films du Worso and by Toufik Ayadi and Christophe Barral for SRAB Films, Le locataire is being co-produced by France 2 Cinéma and Rhône-Alpes Cinéma.

The eight-week shoot will take place in the vicinity of Chambéry, Paris and Toulon, with Julien Roux taking care of the cinematography. Distribution in France will be handled by Diaphana and international sales by Bac Films.
