Oteniente, Dubosc team for 'Disco'
EmptyPARIS -- French helmer Fabien Onteniente and Gallic actor Franck Dubosc are joining forces again for "Disco," following up on the massive success of their last collaborative effort, "Camping," which sold 5.4 million tickets in France.
Produced by Onteniente's production company, Joinville Prods., along with StudioCanal, TF1 and LGM Prods. and distributed by StudioCanal, "Disco" will take its €10 million ($12.9 million) budget to France's Havre region for a 10-week shoot starting in March, LGM's Jean-Baptiste Dupont said Monday.
The all-star cast includes Emmanuelle Beart and Gerard Depardieu, who will reunite on the big screen for the first time since Claude Berri's "Manon of the Spring" 21 years ago.
"Disco" follows a group of nostalgic fortysomethings who decide to open a disco nightclub. Songs from the Bee Gees and Donna Summer will top off the film's soundtrack, the filmmakers said.
