Deadline reports that Tom Shadyac (Ace ventura: Pet Detective, Bruce Almighty) is in talks with The Weinstein Company to remake the wildly successful french film: The Intouchables.

Here’s the trailer for the original:

This will be Shadyac’s first comedic film in six years.

Shadyac’s last film was 2010′s documentary feature: I Am.

The synopsis for I am is included below:

“In I Am, Shadyac steps in front of the camera to recount what happened to him after a cycling accident left him incapacitated, possibly for good. Though he ultimately recovered, he emerged with a new sense of purpose, determined to share his own awakening to his prior life of excess and greed, and to investigate how he as an individual, and we as a race, could improve the way we live and walk in the world.”

The french film The Intouchables, is hilarious and does not need a remake, »
