30 March 2016 2:45 PM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

In 2014, two years after the initial announcement of The Weinstein Company's acquisition of USA remake rights to the French award-winning blockbuster, various French media sites reported that Kevin Hart had been cast in the American remake of "Intouchables" (released as "The Intoucables" here in the States), taking over the role that helped make Omar Sy an international star.

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.
