Guillaume Roussel (3 Days to Kill, Black Beauty, Happy!The SpyThe Man with the Iron Heart) has been tapped to score the upcoming French period thriller The Colors of Fire (Couleurs de l’incendie). The film is directed by Clovis Cornillac (Belle and Sebastian, Friends for Life) and stars Lea Drucker, Benoit Poelvoorde, Olivier Gourmet, Alice Isaaz, as well as Cornillac himself. The movie based on the best-selling novel by Pierre Lemaitre is set in Paris in the 1920s and tells the story of a woman who takes revenge after she misses out on inheriting the financial empire of her father after his death. Lemaitre (Three Days and a Life) also wrote the screenplay and Sidonie Dumas (Narcos: Mexico, The Neon Demon, Late Night) is producing the Gaumont production. Roussel has previously scored Cornillac’s directorial debut Blind Date and his last feature, C’est magnifique!, which is set to be released in 2021. The Colors of Fire is expected to premiere later this year.

Also coming up for Roussel is Cédric Jimenez’s crime thriller BAC Nord, which was set to be released in French theaters last month and is currently awaiting a new release date, as well as Fabrice Eboué’s comedy Barbaque, which is also expected to premiere in 2021.
