EXCLUSIVE: Young Flemish director Robin Pront has signed with WME and Anonymous Content following the world premiere of his debut feature The Ardennes at the Toronto Film Festival. The film is about two bandit brothers — one fresh from prison, the other eager to escape their criminal past — who form a potentially explosive love triangle with the ex-con’s ex-girlfriend. (Check out the trailer bel0w.)
The film was sold to one of France’s leading art house distributors, Diaphana, and Italy’s Satine Films. Savage Films and Bart Van Langendonck produced with Jeroen Perceval writing the screenplay. Attraction Distribution and Savage handled sales.
Pront is now by WME, Anonymous Content and Ken Lambrechts. This development comes on the back of WME also signing up-and-coming Canadian writer-director Jamie Dagg, whose debut feature film River also premiered at Toronto Film Festival in its Discovery section.
