Focus Features has acquired North American distribution rights to “Bastille Day,” a Paris-set action thriller starring Idris Elba and “Blue is the Warmest Color” breakout Adèle Exarchopoulos.

Studiocanal
is financing the project as well as handling international sales and
will distribute the film in France, UK, Germany, Australia, and New
Zealand.

The
deal was negotiated by Beth Lemberger, Focus Features’ EVP of Business
Affairs, and Anna Marsh, Head of International Sales for Studiocanal.
