Jérôme Salle, né le 11 mai 1967 à Paris, est un réalisateur et scénariste français

Biography

Après la réalisation d'un court métrage en 2000, Le Jour de grâce, Jérôme Salle cosigne en 2003 le scénario de Trouble.

En 2005, il réalise son premier film, Anthony Zimmer, avec Sophie Marceau et Yvan Attal, qui lui vaut une nomination au César du meilleur premier film.

En 2007, il réalise Largo Winch, une adaptation cinématographique de la bande-dessinée du même nom. Le film sort en 2008 et connait un gros succès en France, rassemblant plus de 1 800 000 spectateurs en France. En 2010, un remake d’Anthony Zimmer, The Tourist, sort en salles. Il met en vedette Johnny Depp et Angelina Jolie.

Jérôme Salle enchaine avec Largo Winch 2 (2011). Il retrouve alors Tomer Sisley (dans le rôle de Largo), son coscénariste Julien Rappeneau, Denis Rouden (son directeur de la photographie attitré depuis sa première réalisation) et Alexandre Desplat (le compositeur du premier volet). Pour la circonstance, il offre un rôle à Sharon Stone (qui dans une séquence fait un clin d'œil à Basic Instinct). Le film ne rencontre pas le même succès que le volet précédent, il enregistre cependant 1 350 999 entrées en France.

Il adapte ensuite le roman Zulu de Caryl Férey. Le tournage démarre à la mi-septembre 2012 au Cap, en Afrique du Sud, et s’achève courant décembre. Zulu réunit Forest Whitaker et Orlando Bloom dans les rôles principaux. Le film est projeté en clôture de la cérémonie du 66e festival de Cannes, le 26 mai 2013.

Il réalise ensuite un projet de longue date : L'Odyssée, film biographique sur Jacques-Yves Cousteau. Le film sort en 2016. Lambert Wilson y incarne le célèbre commandant, Audrey Tautou est Simone Cousteau et Pierre Niney incarne leur fils, Philippe Cousteau.

Après avoir quitté la Marine nationale française, Jacques-Yves Cousteau veut se lancer dans l'exploration sous-marine. En 1950, il loue le bateau Calypso à un riche britannique. Le « commandant » part alors aux quatre coins du Monde, avec sa femme Simone et notamment Albert « Bebert » Falco. Ses deux fils, Philippe Cousteau et Jean-Michel Cousteau, restent en pension... Quelques années plus tard, Philippe rejoint finalement l'équipe de son père, qui tourne une série de films documentaires financés par une chaîne de télévision américaine. Philippe étant sensibilisé à l'écologie à laquelle son père est insensible, il se brouille avec lui puis, alors que les affaires de Jacques-Yves périclitent, revient auprès de lui et le sensibilise à la protection des océans et des espèces animales menacées, donnant à la carrière de son père une nouvelle orientation et un nouveau départ.

In Hong Kong, owner and majority shareholder of the W Group, Nerio Winch, is awoken up by a phone call on his yacht, Neretva. After he picks up, an unknown man warns Nerio that he found some else to have business with, and Nerio abruptly ends the call. Nerio gets up from his bed and goes to the lower deck, eating an apple. After he throws it into the water, he hears a weird sound from the water. Lowering down to see the source, a diver snatches him and pulls him down and suffocates him. The next day, the W Group board of directors meets up, with Ann Ferguson, Nerio's right-hand man, meets up to discuss the situation. They recently found out that Nerio had a secret son, named Largo, who was adopted from a Yugoslavian orphanage in 1980, over 28 years ago, and was kept as a secret from everyone, and he was raised by Josip and Hannah, a French-Croatian family to whom Nerio was close, along with Josip and Hannah's own son, Goran, until Nerio picked him up and raised him to take over his company one day. Other members are skeptical of Largo's existence, but they want to bring him in to see if he truly is his heir.
