Altitude and Film4 have secured writer and director Julia Ducournau’s eagerly awaited Cannes Film Festival bound thriller, Titane for the UK and Ireland.

Following a series of unexplained crimes, a father is reunited with the son who disappeared ten years ago.

Titane: A metal highly resistant to heat and corrosion, with high tensile strength alloys, often used in medical prostheses due to its pronounced biocompatibility.

Titane stars Agathe Rousselle, Cannes Best Actor-winner Vincent Lindon (The Measure Of A Man), Laïs Salameh and reunites Ducournau with Raw star Garance Marillier.

Ducournau’s follow-up to her 2016 break-out horror hit Raw, winner of the FIPRESCI prize, will play In Competition at the Cannes Film Festival in July.

Titane is produced by Jean-Christophe Reymond for Kazak Productions, edited by Jean-Christophe Bouzy (Raw), cinematography by Reuben Impens (Beautiful Boy) and features an original score from composer Jim Williams (Beast).

Film4 and Altitude have co-acquired the film and will collaborate on the theatrical release later this year.  Film4 will retain customary broadcast and on-demand rights in the UK and Ireland.

Wild Bunch International are handling international sales.
