Worldview Entertainment has come on board to finance and produce Guillaume Canet’s crime thriller “Blood Ties,” a remake of the 2008 French pic “Les Liens du sang” (Rivals).
“Blood Ties” stars Clive Owen, Billy Crudup, Marion Cotillard, Mila Kunis, Zoe Saldana, Matthias Schoenaerts, Noah Emmerich, Lili Taylor, Domenick Lombardozzi and James Caan. Shooting stars in New York city on April 30.
Wild Bunch is handling international sales on the French co-production and will jointly sell North American rights with CAA.
Pic, which will be Canet’s first English language pic, centers on two brothers, on either side of the law, who face off over organized crime in Brooklyn during the 1970s. Canet starred in “Rivals,” from writer-director Jacques Maillot.
