Intouchables Remake Eyes Bryan Cranston And Kevin Hart For Key Roles

30 March 2016 2:25 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite several false starts, it looks as though The Weinstein Company’s Intouchables remake is beginning to set the wheels in motion today, with Deadline reporting that Bryan Cranston and Kevin Hart are in negotiations to headline.

It should be noted that, while neither deal is signed and sealed at the time of writing, talks are reportedly at an advanced stage, as The Weinstein Company is eager to fire up production on its remake of Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano’s French dramedy during the summer. Prior to today’s announcement, both Colin Firth and Tom Shadyac had flirted with key roles in the retelling. Elsewhere, citing sources close to the production, Variety claims that Simon Curtis has closed a deal to helm the western remake.

First released in 2011 by TWC, Intouchables has been ripe for the remake treatment ever since it pulled in a respectable $416 million overseas.

Bryan Cranston & Kevin Hart To Star In Remake Of French Hit 'Intouchables'

30 March 2016 2:21 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Harvey Weinstein has been trying to get a remake of the French hit "Intouchables" off the ground for at least a half decade. Over that time Paul Feig and Tom Shadyac were attached to direct at various points, with Colin Firth set for one of the lead roles, with Chris Rock, Jamie Foxx and Idris Elba rumored along the way to co-star. A couple years ago, the project was shaping up to be a Firth and Kevin Hart jam, and now, yet another change has been made. Deadline reports that Bryan Cranston and Kevin Hart are in talks to lead the movie. The original film, co-directed by Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache, tells the based-on-a-true-story tale of the relationship of a wealthy quadriplegic and his immigrant caregiver. The picture has a big office hit globally, racked up nine César nominations (with a win for Omar Sy), and earned $426 million worldwide »
