To immerse himself perfectly in the world of Nicky Larson, Julien Arruti, Philippe Lacheau, his brother Pierre Lacheau and Pierre Dudan (the same team as BABYSITTING) have reviewed the 144 episodes of the cartoon that have been broadcast in France and reread the 37 numbers of the manga.
In pure comedy, Philippe Lacheau has a true French culture since his models have always been Francis Veber - his absolute master -, Alain Chabat, Dummies(Les Nuls), The Unknown (Les Inconnus) and The Splendid(Le Splendid).
In addition to Dorothée, Philippe Lacheau has invited many guests to play a small role in Nicky Larson. We can see Jean-Paul Césari, singer of the French credits of the original cartoon, and Vincent Ropion, official French voice of the vigilante. Gérard Jugnot, Medi Sadoun, Jerome Le Banner, Raphael Personnaz, Reem Kherici, Audrey Lamy and Chantal Ladesou also make a small appearance.
Filming begins May 21, 2018 and ends in August 2018, fourteen weeks of shooting, a rare thing for a French comedy. Scenes are filmed at the Nice-Côte d'Azur airport. It will continue in Monaco, Paris and Île-de-France.
