Canet's Stateside Debut 'Blood Ties' to Shoot in NYC with Owen, Crudup, Cotillard, Kunis, Saldana & Schoenaerts

Guillaume Canet’s “Blood Ties” now has financing courtesy of Worldview Entertainment, which will also produce. The film has also now locked in stars Clive Owen, Billy Crudup, Marion Cotillard, Mila Kunis, Zoe Saldana, Matthias Schoenaerts, Noah Emmerich, Lili Taylor, Domenick Lombardozzi and James Caan; shooting begins in New York later this month.

This will be Canet’s English-language directorial debut. Canet — movie star, writer, director (and partner of Cotillard) — delivered the stunning French “Tell No One” in 2006, which is getting an English-language remake from Ben Affleck and Focus Features. Canet adapted the “Blood Ties” script with writer-director James Gray after starring in the original French film (2008’s “Les Liens du sang” aka “Rivals” – trailer below). It is the story of two brothers: younger (Crudup) asks the elder (Owen), a convict, to come back into the underworld in order to help their family. Cotillard and Kunis will play their lady loves.

Canet starred opposite Keira Knightey in American indie “Last Night.” Worldview also produced Cotillard’s upcoming untitled romantic drama for director Gray (“Two Lovers,” “We Own The Night”), which co-stars Joaquin Phoenix and Jeremy Renner; it is currently in post. Cotillard and Schoenaerts also star together in the upcoming “Rust & Bone.”
