Cannes: 'The Intouchables' Directing Duo Reunite for Wedding Comedy
'C'est La Vie,' from Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache, will be centered around the day in the life of a wedding planner.
Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache, the directing duo whose 2011 comedy The Intouchables became one of France's biggest hits of all time, will reunite for a new comedy.
C'est La Vie, which Gaumont will introduce to the market in Cannes next week, will star Jean-Pierre Bacri and Gilles Lellouche and will be centered around the day in the life of Max, a wedding planner who is forced to deal with annoying client requests, feuding employees and relatives who freeload, all in the name of love.
The film is being produced by Laurent Zeitoun, Yann Zenou and Nicolas Duval at Quad Films, the same team behind The Intouchables and Toledano and Nakache's 2014 comedy-drama Samba, with Gaumont again co-producing.
The Intouchables earned more than $420 million in the global box office, including $166 million in France.
