Anton Boards Laurent Zeitoun and Yann Zenou’s ‘Fireheart’ (Exclusive)

  • Variety
Bringing one of the biggest new independent animation projects onto the Cannes market, London-based Anton is lead-financing and handling world sales on “Fireheart,” produced by Main Journey’s Laurent Zeitoun and Yann Zenou.

Budgeted at $40 million, “Fireheart” marks a step-up in scale for the Montreal-based Main Journey whose “Ballerina” (released in the U.S. as “Leap!”) earned $110 million worldwide. Zeitoun and Zenou’s producer credits also include “The Intouchables,” which grossed a global $427 million.

Set in New York in the roaring twenties, “Fireheart” is written by Zetoun and Jennica Harper (“Some Assembly Required”) from an idea and story by Zeitoun.

‘Descendants 2’: How This Long-Running Female Writing Team Came Up With One of Disney’s Most Important Franchises
When Sara Parriott and Josann McGibbon first teamed up 32 years ago, the door had just started to crack open for female film writers.

“We came at the right time, it was right when women writers were coming into vogue,” McGibbon said. “It was the time of ‘Thelma and Louise’ and there was two of us — a blonde and a brunette and it all fell into place.”

Parriott and McGibbon’s latest project, “Descendants 2,” premieres Friday night on Disney Channel, as well as ABC, Freeform, Disney Xd and Lifetime. It’s now a key franchise for Disney, and the latest career twist for Parriott and McGibbon, who now boast one of the longest-running writing partnerships in all of Hollywood.
