Chris Tucker Could Star In Remake Of French Mega-Hit The Intouchables

The French interracial buddy dramedy The Intouchables drew the eye of Hollywood producers.

Not only scoring plenty of praise—including 9 César Award nominations—but also by earning more than $405 million worldwide and becoming the highest grossing French feature yet. With successes like this, an English-language remake was guaranteed.

The original film blended drama with comedy to create a heartwarming crowdpleaser, presumably a balance TWC would look to maintain.

Of course, Tucker is best known for his broad and loud comedy style, but with the critically praised Silver Lining Playbook, he has been dabbling in dramedy.

If this will be enough to appease the producers of The Intouchables remake, well, time will tell.
