Rilean Pictures Jonathan Saba, Juan Iglesias To Remake Rohmer's 'Le Beau Mariage'

Los Angeles-based Rilean Pictures has acquired the remake rights to Eric Rohmer’s Le Beau Mariage (A Good Marriage). Rilean partners Jonathan Saba and Juan Iglesias will write and produce. Iglesias most recently co-wrote and executive produced AMC’s The Trivial Pursuits of Arthur Banks starring Jeffrey Tambor, Adam Goldberg and Pete Chekvala. The late Rohmer was one of the influential French New Wave directors including Jean-Luc Godard, Francois Truffaut, Claude Chabrol and others. Originally released in 1982, Le Beau Mariage stars Béatrice Romand as Sabine, an eccentric who is fed up with being the mistress of a married man and decides it’s time to get married herself. She pursues an affluent lawyer several years her senior, setting in motion an absurd quest. Iglesias says he and Saba “feel truly indebted to Eric Rohmer and the path he helped forge for independent cinema.” Saba added they are excited to “be able to interpret Rohmer’s distinctive take on relationships and customary dry wit for an entirely new audience.” (more…)
