The sexy star will next be seen in 'The Chameleon', no Spidey fans not that 'Chameleon' (although we would all love to see him on the big screen).
The film is directed by Jean-Paul Salomé and co stars the delicious 'Lost' alumna Emilie de Ravin in a story of an FBI Agent hot on the tracks of Frédéric Fortin who has taken up the identity of a woman's »
There once was a man named Frédéric Bourdin. Desperate to fill the voids in his life, he hit the road and lived not as himself, but as a number of different identities. But they weren't just figments of his imagination. No matter what his age, he specialized in orphans and young people, daring to even take on the identity of three missing children. In fact, Bourdin was so skilled -- at mimicry or maybe just preying on desperation -- that he even managed to convince one American family that he was their son, even with a French accent and the wrong color eyes.
This is the sort of story that is just ripe for Hollywood, and low and behold, it has inspired a feature film called The Chameleon, which has just released a long, 5-minute trailer. Jean-Paul Salomé's English-language debut stars Marc-André Grondin (star of the excellent C.R.A.Z.Y., and »

French items worth keeping an eye out for are Benoît Philippon's Lullaby for Pi – which was shot in Canada and would logically find a spot at Tiff. Mathieu Kassovitz also has a project in development . Buried by Rodrigo Cortes - Post-Production Heartbreaker (L'arnacoeur) by Pascal Chaumeil »
