Indie Trailer Sunday: Jérôme Salle's 'The Heir Apparent: Largo Winch'
"You're a Winch, Largo. What matters is your future." Today's indie trailer, the first in a little while, is for another awesome Belgian graphic novel adaptation other than Tintin, this one titled The Heir Apparent: Largo Winch, based on the Largo Winch series. Tomer Sisley, who also stars in our French favorite Sleepless Night, plays Largo Winch. The cast also includes Miki Manojlovic, Kristin Scott Thomas and Mélanie Thierry. This looks somewhat like if a corporate CEO's heir was an action movie superstar, with a tinge of Michael Bay. One thing is for sure - this confirms that Tomer Sisley is truly badass. Check this out!
Watch the official US trailer for Jérôme Salle's The Heir Apparent: Largo Winch, in HD via Apple:
When billionaire financier Nerio Winch (Manojlovic) and head of the W Group is murdered, his second in command (Scott Thomas) must locate his only heir - a heretofore unknown adopted son, Largo (Sisley).
The Heir Apparent: Largo Winch is directed by French filmmaker Jérôme Salle, who also directed Anthony Zimmer and followed this up with The Burma Conspiracy, or Largo Winch II. The screenplay was written by Julien Rappeneau & Jérôme Salle, based on the popular Belgian comic book series by Philippe Francq and Jean Van Hamme, published by Dupuis. This first premiered in Belgium/France back in 2008, and is somehow finally just now working its way over to the US, getting a limited release from Music Box Films. The Heir Apparent: Largo Winch is playing VOD and in limited theaters now. Visit the official US website.
