David Marconi To Direct Frank Grillo In EuropaCorp’s ‘Intersection

Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp will head to Berlin’s European Film Market with a couple of hot English-language titles, including Enemy Of The State and Live Free Or Die Hardwriter David Marconi’s second outing as director,Intersection. Paris-based Europa is currently in production on the thriller that Marconi also penned. Frank Grillo, who’s been making a name for himself with recent turns inThe GreyWarrior and the upcoming Gangster Squad, stars alongside Roschdy Zem (Days Of Glory); Marie-Josée Croze (Tell No One,The Diving Bell And The Butterfly); and Charlie Bewley, who plays Demetri in theTwilight movies. The story centers on a rich and beautiful couple on their honeymoon in Morocco. After escaping a deadly multi-car pileup at a desert intersection, the group of survivors — including a wanted smuggler, an undercover cop, a kidnapper, a baby and an unconscious Australian — embark on a journey of deceit and revelation that culminates in a Tangiers souk. Delivery is for fourth quarter this year.

Also in Europa’s lineup is the previously announced Brick Mansions, the remake of Pierre Morel’s Besson-produced District 13, which sparked the Parkour movement. The action shifts to Chicago in the remake with a screenplay by Besson and Robert Mark Kamen. Colombiana editor Camille Delamarre is making her feature directorial debut with Paul Walker and David Belle starring. Shooting is expected to begin in November. On the French-language side, Europa will be talking up the Jean Dujardin/Cécile de France-starrer Möbius, director Eric Rochant’s spy thriller currently in preproduction.
