Produced by Polaris Films Productions, 2 Days in New York will start shooting at the end of the year. Penned by the director, the film centres again on French woman Marion (Delpy), who has broken up with Jack and now lives in New York with their children.
Her Parisian family come to visit her, but the cultural differences between her eccentric father and new American boyfriend will turn out to be explosive. Meanwhile, her sister has had the "good" idea of bringing an ex-boyfriend from Paris and there is the pressure of an upcoming photography exhibition.
At the market, Rezo’s sales team, headed by Laurent Danielou and Sebastien Chesneau, will also present a promo-reel for Antoine Blossier’s French horror film Prey, which is in post-production. Produced by Quasar and Polaris, the feature stars Grégoire Colin, Berénice Bejo and François Levantal.
In the countryside, in autumn, the animals behave strangely and the men in a local family of pesticide manufacturers go into the forest to investigate. But they will become the prey.
Other new titles on the line-up include Canadian director Xavier Dolan’s latest film Love, Imagined, which is in post-production; and US filmmaker Jaffe Zinn’s Magic Valley.
Rezo will present market screenings of Stéphane Brizé’s Mademoiselle Chambon [+see also:
