18 jun 2021 MK2 Films Boards Musical Film ‘Don Juan’ With Tahar Rahim, Virginie Efira

MK2 Films has acquired worldwide sales rights to “Don Juan,” Serge Bozon’s musical romantic comedy with Tahar Rahim (“The Mauritanian”) and Virginie Efira (“Benedetta”).

Rahim stars as Laurent, a stage actor who gets jilted on his wedding day and embarks on a quest to seduce every woman he meets in order to mend his broken heart and ego. But none of them are lured by his elaborate charming performances, including musical ones. Meanwhile, over at the theater, Laurent plays the part of Don Juan, and is forced to star opposite his ex-fiancée (Efira) after she’s hired by the production to replace the departing leading actress.

Bozon is a well-established filmmaker who is best known for his sophisticated comedies, including “Mrs Hyde” which won best actress at Locarno for Isabelle Huppert in 2017, and “Tip Top,” which world premiered at Cannes’ Directors’ Fortnight and won the SACD Prize.

“Bozon returns with a contemporary take on ‘Don Juan’ in a playful musical where Tahar Rahim and Virginie Efira shine as the singing and dancing, love-me-hate-me couple,” said MK2 Films. The company will be launching sales on “Don Juan” at the Pre-Cannes Screenings.

The movie brings together two of France’s biggest stars. Rahim is rolling off Netflix and BBC’s “The Serpent” and Kevin Macdonald’s “The Mauritanian” for which he earned a flurry of international laurels; and Efira is the star of Paul Verhoeven’s Cannes-bound “Benedetta.”

“Don Juan” is being produced by Les Films Pelleas and will be delivered in 2022.

MK2 Films will be presenting Joachim Trier’s “The Worst Person in the World” in competition at Cannes, along with several other films throughout the Official Selection and sidebars.
