PARIS – Dany Boon is welcome at Pathe with the French actor-director behind box-office phenomenon Welcome to the Sticks signing a three-picture production and distribution deal with the French filmmaking powerhouse, Pathe said on Thursday.

The agreement was signed in Paris. Boon's highly anticipated comedy about Franco-Belgian relations Nothing to Declare hits theaters in the North of France and in Belgium on Wednesday before a wide release in France on Feb. 2nd.

Sticks broke every French box-office record when it was released in 2008.

Nothing to Declare has already received scathing reviews from the Gallic press ahead of its release, though is expected to make a critic-proof showing at the box office later this week.
