Want To Co-Produce a film with Luc Besson?
EuropaCorp. and France Telecom subsidiary Orange are offering French cinema fans the opportunity to co-produce a film with Luc Besson according to The Hollywood Reporter. The French indie studio and Telecom group are combining efforts with a new website, we-are-producteurs.com that will allow fans to help produce the group’s next film.
The website, which launched on Friday, will allow users to have a hand in all the aspects of the film from the script to the final screenplay. Users can become as involved as they wish, helping vote on one of five scripts, choose the director and cast, and even help finance the film. Those who provide financial backing for the film will get a cut of box office revenue once the film is released.
The group is hoping to have the project, which as of now is untitled, in theaters in the fall of 2011. For his part, Besson has assembled a focus group of sorts containing some of the industry’s best minds to help guide the public project and offer online users support in the voting process.
