'The Artist' Star Jean Dujardin Taking on a Spy Role in 'Möbius' Next

Jean Dujardin

One of the many actors to come out of 2011 with a lot of buzz is Frenchman Jean Dujardin, who starred in Michel Hazanavicius' B&W silent film The Artist as George Valentin. He does an extraordinary job and I'm glad to see him continue taking on all the roles he wants. While this was first reported last year by Variety, over on they're now confirming (in the middle of all the awards buzz) that Jean Dujardin will next be starring in a film called Möbius, from French director Eric Rochant (Love Without Pity, Long Live the Republic, "Mafiosa"). He'll play an "experienced intelligence officer" and return to Europe to shoot.

The film, Möbius, being written and directed by Eric Rochant, will star Jean Dujardin and Belgian actress Cécile de France. Set in Monte Carlo (where they will also be shooting most of this), in the world of high finance, Mobius stars Dujardin as an experienced spy tracking a powerful oligarch suspected of laundering money through his bank, and de France as a bright young trader. Recifilms, Axelfilms, Treasury Productions and EuropaCorp are producing. It's expected to shoot sometime this year, likely after all the Oscar and awards season craziness dies down. Dujardin has appeared in many French films previous, including 99 francs, Lucky Luke and both of Hazanavicius' OSS 117 films as a spy. He's likely to get an Oscar nomination for Best Actor in the next few weeks (deserving of it) and already has SAG and Golden Globes noms, too.
