Key Players in the Cannes Market: Kinology

Kinology is heading to Cannes with a single title in Copacabana – the Isabelle Huppert starring with her daughter comedy is a focal point in the Critic’s Week section this year. It’s the projects that they’ve got on the sales slate that have got my ears perked up in an upright position – beginning with Juan Solanas’ next – he is currently shooting Upside Down in Montreal, while Andrew Niccol is still in pre-production mod with The Cross.

Kinology is heading to Cannes with a single title in Copacabana – the Isabelle Huppert starring with her daughter comedy is a focal point in the Critic’s Week section this year. It’s the projects that they’ve got on the sales slate that have got my ears perked up in an upright position – beginning with Juan Solanas’ next – he is currently shooting Upside Down in Montreal, while Andrew Niccol is still in pre-production mod with The Cross – if I remember correctly it was first announced at last year’s Cannes and they are trying to bring down the price tag on the 50 million dollar-ish production. French items worth keeping an eye out for are Benoît Philippon’s Lullaby for Pi – which was shot in Canada and would logically find a spot at TIFF. Mathieu Kassovitz also has a project in development .
