Produced by Alain Benguigui for Sombrero Films and Thomas Verhaeghe for Atelier de Production, The Teacher is co-produced by France 3 Cinéma. Rights to the film, which will be distributed in the second half of 2017 and sold internationally by Bac Films, have also been pre-purchased by Canal+ and Ciné+.

Following two days of shooting in Morocco this week, Sombrero Films and Atelier de Production will also wrap shooting for Eric Lavaine’s romantic comedy L'embarras du choix [+see also:

, which features Alexandra Lamy playing a woman who falls in love with two men. Arnaud Ducret, Anne Marivin, Sabrina Ouazani, and Jamie Bamber will also appear in the film, which will be distributed by Pathé.

As a final note, Sombrero Films is also co-producing Yanna Gozlan’s Burn Out, principal photography for which is currently underway (read the article).
