A lot of foreign actors take their Hollywood success and run straight to the set of a blockbuster studio pic.

A lot of foreign actors take their Hollywood success and run straight to the set of a blockbuster studio pic. It’s nice to see that Cannes/Weinstein Company darling Jean Dujardin - the star of the crowdpleasing, awards season player “The Artist” - isn’t waiting around to see if Sony needs an additional villain for the “Green Hornet” sequel, but has instead signed onto French auteur Eric Rochant’s thriller-romance “Mobius.” Joining him will be

 Cecile De France, who co-starred with Matt Damon in last year’s “Hereafter” and also hit Cannes this spring as the star of the Dardennes' "The Kid With The Bike". 

For Dujardin

—probably best known as the star of the French spoof 'OSS 117' films—he tackle the familiar genre a bit more directly here, playing a spy who is tracking down an oligarch suspected of money laundering through his bank. France will play a young trader with prouducers boasting that the film will feature an international cast when they're ready to roll.


 

As with every other project announced this week, it's being shopped at the American Film Market. "Mobius" is already in pre-production and the plan is have it all wrapped up by next winter. But for now, Rochant is currently finishing up his epic "Mafioso" series for French TV. [Variety]
