D Films plans a spring 2014 release for the movie, which has Owen as a washed-up writer clashing with Binoche as a prickly artist, clashing at a school where they teach over which is the best artistic discipline: painting or literature.

Words and Pictures, penned by Gerald Di Pego, is produced by Latitude Productions' Curtis Burch, in association with Lascaux Films.

Voltage Pictures is handling international rights to the film.
