'The Artist's' Jean Dujardin To Star in French Spy Thriller 'Mobius'
The acclaimed actor says shooting will take place in Monte Carlo and Hungary.
Jean Dujardin, star of critic's darling and Oscar contender The Artist, has confirmed his leading role in the French thriller Mobius, in which he'll play an experienced spy.
“I like to alternate between (types) of projects,” Dujardin said in Tuesday's edition of the New York Post, confessing that if he had to choose a dream role, it would be "19th-century French expatriate who travels to California."
The France-born actor has been on the awards campaign circuit since The Artist, director Michel Hazanavicius' ode to the silent film era, began earning critical accolades and emerged as a frontrunner for this year's Academy Awards.
