Robert Pattinson, Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott Thomas, Christina Ricci and Colm Meaney star in the Guy de Maupassant adaptation, Bel Ami, about a manipulative young social climber in 19th century Paris. Bel Ami received its world premiere in Berlin last month. Magnolia Pictures will handle the U.S. theatrical release of the film.
Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod directed from Rachel Bennette’s adapted screenplay. Uberto Pasolini produced and Simon Fuller of XIX Entertainment served as executive producer.
“Bel Ami is a well-crafted, appealing film with a terrific ensemble cast,” Magnolia president Eamonn Bowles said. “We think it’s a great fit for our Ultra VOD program.”
Bel Ami will open on June 8.
