Sony Buys Besson's "Angel"

by | May 25, 2006 | Comments

French filmmaker Luc Besson, who produces tons of flicks but hasn’t directed one since "The Messenger," has directed a new movie. It’s a comedy called "Angel-A," it debuted in France late last year, and Sony’s arthouse division just bought it.

From Variety: "Sony Pictures Classics has picked up North American rights to Luc Besson’s "Angel-A," which the Gallic filmmaker wrote, directed and produced.

"Angel A" — which was shot in Paris last summer and bowed in France in December — stars Jamel Debbouze as an incompetent schemer who owes a large amount of money to creditors all over Paris. His fate takes a new direction when he improbably meets the leggy Angela (Rie Rasmussen), who helps him tackle his problems. Gilbert Melki and Serge Riaboukine also star."

No word yet on when Sony Pictures Classics will be releasing "Angel-A" on this particular continent.
