The French outfit has a few projects filming in France and Canada in the coming weeks.

Studiocanal is set to begin shooting Cedric Jimenez’ French crime thriller, Bac Nord, in the PACA region surrounding Marseille from August 9th, the company confirmed to KFTV.com.

The movie is set in the dangerous northern housing projects of Marseille and follows the controversial activities of a special police intervention unit called BAC Nord.

The project reteams Studiocanal with Hugo Selignac and Vincent Mazel at Chi-Fou-Mi Productions, the Paris-based company behind the Cesar-nominated and box-office success Sink or Swim, and In Safe Hands.

Studiocanal is co-producing the film with France 2 Cinema and has acquired all rights, including the international sales.

Another project going into production is Gilles de Maistre’s family adventure film The Wolf and the Lion, which has begun principal photography, but will shoot until June next year in Quebec, Canada, to capture the growth of the animals portrayed in the film.

The Wolf and the Lion, which is produced by Mediawan-owned Mai Juin Productions and Galatee Films, and co-produced with Studiocanal, is the follow up to Mia and the White Lion, which has been released in more than 30 territories and grossed more than $31m outside of France.

The film stars Molly Kunz (Widows) and Oscar-nominated Graham Greene (Dances with Wolves), alongside several animals who will be tended to on set by Andrew Simpson, an animal trainer who worked on Game of Thrones.

Studiocanal is also currently shooting Laurent Lafitte’s drama L’Origine du Monde in Paris and its suburbs until August. The film is about a man whose heart stops beating, but he can continue thinking, talking and walking. The cast includes Karin Viard, Vincent Macaigne and Hélène Vincent.
