Vincent Cassel’s ‘Mesrine: Killer Instinct’ releases official poster

HollywoodNews.com: Vincent Cassel’s latest film “Mesrine: Killer Instinct” has just release the official poster for the film.

Winner of three Césars (French Academy Awards) for Best Actor, Best Director and Best Sound, “Mesrine: Killer Instinct” was co-written and directed by Jean-François Richet, from a screenplay by Abdel Raouf Dafri (“A Prophet”) adapted from Jacques Mesrine’s autobiography L’Instinct de mort (Death Instinct). The films star Vincent Cassel, Cécile de France, Gérard Depardieu, Roy Dupuis, Ludivine Sagnier, Mathieu Amalric, Elena Anaya and Olivier Gourmet.

“Mesrine: Killer Instinct” – the first of two parts – charts the outlaw odyssey of Jacques Mesrine (Vincent Cassel), the legendary French gangster of the 1960s and 1970s who came to be known as French Public Enemy No. 1 and The Man of a Thousand Faces. Infamous for his bravado and outrageously daring prison escapes, Mesrine carried out numerous robberies, kidnappings and murders in a criminal career that spanned continents until he was shot dead in 1979 by France’s notorious anti-gang unit. Thirty years after his death, his infamy lives on.

Mesrine was helped along the way by beautiful and equally reckless Jeanne Schneider (Cécile de France), a Bonnie to match his Clyde. Mesrine made up his own epic, between romanticism and cruelty, flamboyance and tragedy. Both a thriller and a biopic, “Killer Instinct” explores the man behind the icon.

Maverick French star Vincent Cassel’s performances include the upcoming Darren Aronofsky’s “Black Swan” and Romain Gavras’ “Redheads.” He previously appeared in Steven Soderbergh’s “Ocean’s Twelve” and “Thirteen” and David Cronenberg’s “Eastern Promises” (as Kerill, the son of Russian mobster Semyon). His other credits include Mathieu Kassovitz’ “La Haine” and “Crimson Rivers,” Christopher Gans’ “Brotherhood of the Wolves” and Gaspar Noé’s “Irreversible.” Cassel is currently in production on Dominik Moll’s “The Monk” and will soon begin production on David Cronenberg’s “A Dangerous Method.”

“Mesrine: Killer Instinct” will open in select theaters August 13, 2010.
