The Pack to screen in Cinéma de la Plage
For the first time, several unreleased films will screen in world avant-premiere in the Cinéma de la Plage (“Cinema on the Beach”) section of the Official Selection of the 63rd Cannes Film Festival (May 12-23).
The line-up includes Franck Richard’s horror film The Pack [+see also:
film profile], starring Emilie Dequenne, Yolande Moreau, Benjamin Biolay and Philippe Nahon. This French/Belgian co-production traces the misadventures of a young woman who discovers a truck-stop whose landlady feeds a pack of little bloodthirsty ghouls.
Produced by Overlook Entertainment (Vérane Frédiani and Franck Ribière) for €2.87m, the film was co-produced by Belgium’s Be-Films, backed by Backup Films and pre-bought by Canal +, Ciné Cinéma and TPS.
Three documentaries will also be unveiled in world avant-premiere at the Cinéma de la Plage evenings: Jeff and Michael Zimbalist’s The 2 Escobars; Greg MacGillivray and Sam George’s Hollywood Don’t Surf (with appearances by John Milius and Steven Spielberg); and Lionel Guedj and Stéphane Bébert’s Rock'n’Roll…..of Corse, which retraces the career of Henry Padovani, the young Corsican guitarist who co-founded the band The Police and then crossed paths with The Clash, Sex Pistols, The Who, The Pretenders, REM and Zucchero.
Finally, the opening ceremony of the 63rd Cannes Film Festival will be broadcast live from 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 12, in several cinemas across France, as a prelude to Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood [+see also:
