Cohen Media Group has acquired all U.S. rights to the Catherine Deneuve vehicle “In the Name of My Daughter,” which is set to world premiere out of competition at Cannes.
Variety first reported the acquisition of the film, which stars Deneuve as Agnes Le Roux, a casino heiress who disappeared in 1977. The drama was directed by Andre Téchiné’s with Adele Haenel and Guillaume Canet rounding out the cast.
The deal was negotiated by Charles Cohen and Adeline Fontan Tessaur, co-founder of the film’s rep Elle Driver. “In the Name of My Daughter” is set for release in early 2015.
