Liya Kebede, Aissa Maiga Co-Star In French Film "Sur la piste du Marsupilami" (On The Trail Of Marsupilami)

From the looks of the trailer and teaser-clip embedded below, actresses Liya Kebede and Aissa Maiga are clearly not the stars of French director Alain Chabat's comedy, Sur la piste du Marsupilami (On The Trail Of Marsupilami).  But they're talented, they're beautiful, and they bring a little something special to a scene whenever they're on-screen.  So I'll definitely try to see this one if I can.

Sur la piste du Marsupilami is expected to be in theaters in France in April.  Kebede was last seen on the big screen in 2011's Black Gold, alongside Antonio Banderas and Frieda Pinto.  Maiga is scheduled to also appear this year in the biographical French-TV production, Toussaint L'Ouverture, with Jimmy Jean-Louis and Sonia Rolland.

I had a friend help me out with the translation of the synopsis (thanks, Vic):

When Dan Geraldo, a reporter in search of a scoop, arrived in Palombie, he did not doubt that he would make the most incredible discoveries. With Pablito, a local guide full of resources, they went from one surprise to another during a hectic adventure and revealed a new extraordinary discovery: The Marsupilami, mythical animal and facetious, really exists!

Surprise, surprise . . . neither of the two ladies appears in the film's non-subtitled trailer:

But here's a teaser-clip of Kebede in character:
