Jean Dujardin & Vincent Cassel Team for 'One Wild Moment' Remake
After taking home the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy last night, French actor Jean Dujardin is set to team with The Artist producer Thomas Langmann yet again this time with Vincent Cassel (Ocean's 12, Black Swan). THR learned from Langmann that Dujardin and Cassel will unite for a remake of One Wild Moment, a 1977 French romantic comedy about two middle-aged best friends who end up in a strange situation when one of the men begins a secret romance with the other's daughter. However, things get interesting when the father enlists his friend to figure out who is seducing his daughter.
Interestingly enough, Langmann is actually the son of Claude Berri, the man who wrote and directed the original film. However, as of now, it's not clear who will be at the helm of this remake or if it will be one of those foreign films that makes it to the United States. With all of the attention surrounding The Artist and Jean Dujardin, we'll likely be seeing a lot more of the French actor on American screens sometime soon. In the meantime, I'm interested to dive into some more films from his native land, and eagerly look forward to this reunion of talent from The Artist with Vincent Cassel thrown into the mix.
You should all watch "OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies", a spy film parody directed by Michel Hazanavicius and starring Jean Dujardin as well.

Wasn't this the same premise as "Blame it on Rio"?

That film is in fact a remake of the original 1977 French film as well.

It should be pretty good.

I hope it's Cassel being mad and scary, while Dujardin loses his sh!t covering up he bedded Cassel's daughter. The reverse casting would just be too dull. French press shows Yvan Attal (Charlotte Gainsbourg's husband) is directing it. He's done some frustrated adults in sex-comedy before.
