The Weinstein Company is one of the few companies making multiple buys at the Cannes Film Festival as it rounds the corner of its first weekend of premieres and parties. Word comes that the company has just acquired French food-centric comedy HAUTE CUISINE. The film stars Catherine Frot as Daniele Delpeuch, a private chef for former French president Francois Mitterrand. Mitterrand was the longest-tenured president in French history and played a crucial role in furthering the integration of Europe. Jean D’Ormesson, a Paris-born novelist, plays Mitterrand. In the film, Mitterrand falls in love with Depeuch’s cooking, alienating the official cooking staff. Etienne Comar, who co-wrote OF GODS AND MEN, co-wrote the film with director Christian Vincent. The Weinsteins have been a powerful force at Cannes, buying a series of projects including a documentary about the fall of Libyan dictator Moammar Qaddafi and a scripted film about the raid that killed Osama Bin Laden.
