CANNES MOVIE UPDATE #4

16 June 2014 Latest Acquisitions

Europacorp is ramping up the action.

In addition to rebooting the Transporter franchise and bringing back Bryan Mills for Taken III, the studio has unveiled a slate of massive titles that are now part of the Gulf Film arsenal.

For starters, Simon West (The Expendables 2, The Mechanic, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider) will direct DNA. Pegged for a 2016 release, the actioner follows two hitmen as they fight over the love and safety of their daughter in the deadliest custody battle of all time.

More intrigue comes courtesy of The Lake, in which a group of Navy SEALs attempts to solve a long forgotten mystery while uncovering an immense treasure hidden in a lake in war-torn Serbia.

And as revealed earlier this year, Europacorp has signed Louis Leterrier (Now You See Me, Clash of the Titans, The Incredible Hulk) to direct Sea at War. The colossal 2016-slated title revolves around a young girl who is transformed into a mermaid following an accident at sea. Her human boyfriend dedicates his life to finding her, and must ultimately navigate an epic battle between the creatures of the sea and the ships upon it.

Gerard Butler made Cannes headlines this past month when news was announced that the Scot will star in Relativity's Den of Thieves.

Featuring electrifying action and breathtaking twists, Den of Thieves is the sleek modern crime story of a sophisticated group of Los Angeles bank robbers attempting to outmanoeuvre a merciless division of rogue law enforcement agents and pull off a heist for the ages.

Christian Gudegast directs from his own script.

CANNES MOVIE UPDATE #2

More news, straight from Cannes.

The third entry in the Taken franchise is shaping up in many great ways as Oscar winner Forest Whitaker joins the cast. Liam Neeson, Famke Janssen and Maggie Grace will reprise their roles, with filmmaker Luc Besson aiming for a January 2015 release.

Taken 3 will be set in the US and, while no one will be ‘taken’ this time around, we have been promised a shocking twist to the storyline.
