Bonnaire, Ganz make ‘Chess’ moves
Pic is directorial debut for Bottaro

COLOGNE — Sandrine Bonnaire (“Intimate Strangers”) will star alongside Swiss-German actor Bruno Ganz (“Downfall”) in scribe Caroline Bottaro’s helming debut.

In the French-German co-production “Joueuse” (The Chess Player), Bonnaire plays a hotel chambermaid who develops an obsession for chess. Bottaro penned drama “C’est la vie,” which also featured Bonnaire.

Pic, which is being produced by Paris-based Mon Voisin Production and German unit Blueprint Film, has received some $700,000 in production aid from the German-French Film Funding Commission.
