Bérénice Bejo’s heist film is headed to U.S. theaters…
Cohen Media Group has acquired the North American distribution and English-language remake rights to The Last Diamond, starring the 37-year-old Argentine actress.
Written and directed by Eric Barbier (The Serpent, Toreros), the French suspense drama centers on paroled jewel thief Simon (Yvan Attal) as he plots the heist of a legendary diamond, put up for auction by the family of gem expert Julia (Bejo).
Masquerading as a securityconsultant, Simon leads the beautiful but vulnerable Julia down a seductive, dangerous path toward a fate neither of them suspected.
Jean-Francois Stévenin also stars.
The Last Diamond will have its North American premiere at the Colcoa Film Festival in Hollywood.
It’s set to open in France at the end of the month followed by an early 2015 release in the U.S.
