A number of new projects up for sale have been (and continue to be) announced at the the European Film Market (EFM) which is now underway in Berlin; including this one titled Porn In The Hood, a French film from French production company Gaumont, so I assume Porn In The Hood is the English title.

A number of new projects up for sale have been (and continue to be) announced at the the European Film Market (EFM) which is now underway in Berlin; including this one titled Porn In The Hood, a French film from French production company Gaumont, so I assume Porn In The Hood is the English title.

To be directed by actor, comedian, director Frank Gastamabide, Porn in the Hood is said to be center on 3 unemployed young men from the banlieues of Paris who try to break into the porn business. Of course, hijinx and hilarity ensue.

The banlieues by the way are essentially the project; the word has becomes a euphemism to describe low-income housing projects in which primarily immigrants live - North African immigrants especially. 

Here's a longer synopsis:

Mousten, Abdelkrim and Momo, are three childhood friends who have always lived in the slums of Melun. All three wear baseball caps and gym shoes, and all three have the same problem: they are desperately single and spend their days watching life go by, unmotivated and with no ambition. And then, one day they discover a classified ad in a porn magazine, announcing auditions to become a porn star. Hard up for women and cash, they decide to go for what sounds like the best job in the world. This attempt becomes a journey of discovery and the greatest adventure in their lives.

Did I mention hijinx and hilarity? :)

Gastamabide, who also wrote the script, will star as one of the 3 men, along with Jib Pocthier and Medi Sadoun.

No media to look at yet - stills, clips, etc; the photo above is of the director, Gastamabide.
