Pierre Schoeller garnered much acclaim in Un Certain Regard at Cannes in 2008 and 2011 with Versailles [+see also:

 (nominated for the César Awards for Best First Feature Film and Best Actor in 2009) and The Minister (César Awards for Best Original Screenplay, Best Supporting Actor and Best Sound in 2012, and nominated in eight other categories, including Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Cinematography). 

The storyline of the movie, written by the director himself, begins in 1789. The people have started revolting. We’d better listen to them, as they have things to say. Un peuple et son roi crosses the destinies of the men and women of the population, and those of historical figures. Their meeting place is the newly founded National Assembly. At the heart of the story lie the fate of the king and the birth of the French Republic…

Produced by Denis Freyd for Archipel 35 (which previously partnered up with the filmmaker on The Minister), Un peuple et son roi is being co-produced by France 3 Cinéma and StudioCanal (which will be in charge of the French theatrical and video distribution, as well as the international sales). Having been pre-purchased by Canal+ and Ciné+, the film is also being backed by the CNC’s advance on receipts, the Île-de-France region, the European Union’s Creative Europe MEDIA programme, the Procirep, the Angoa, and the Cofinova, Banque Postale Image, Indéfilms, Cofimage, Cinémage and Cinécap Soficas. The nine-week shoot will take place in Paris and Île-de-France, with a theatrical release slated for some time in 2018.
