THE MESSENGER: THE STORY OF JOAN OF ARC

PATRICE LEDOUX holds a doctorate of literature from Paris University, and worked in French television for ten years before joining Gaumont Films in 1981, where his first assignment was the production of Francesco Rosi's Carmen, with Placido Domingo and Julia Migenes-Johnson. He became Gaumont's chief operating officer and president in 1985, a position that allowed him to take a strong hand in the production of many of the films he's green-lighted, including Jean-Jacques Beineix's Betty Blue, Jean-Marie Poire's The Visitors, Michel Blanc's Grosse Fatigue and Bertrand Blier's Un, Deux, Trois, Soleil.

Ledoux's association with Luc Besson began with the undersea adventure The Big Blue and continued with La Femme Nikita, Atlantis, The Professional and The Fifth Element. He has received a BAFTA Film Award nomination for Best Foreign Language Film on Carmen and was nominated for a European Film Award for his work on The Fifth Element.
