PRODUCTION France

Chabat directs RRRrrr!

by 

Alain Chabat’s latest film, RRRrrrr !!! will star the popular Robin des Bois comic troupe who are familiar faces to French TV viewers.
Following the 1997 domestic box office success of Didier (2.5 million tickets sold) and the triumph that was Asterix and Obelix: Mission Cleopatra (14.2 million tickets), Alain Chabat decided to set up his own production company: Chez Wam. Chabat’s partners on RRRrrrr !!! are StudioCanal, TF1 and comedy troupe Robin des Bois Airlines. This will be the feature debut of the troupe, although two of its members, Marina Foïs (Filles Perdues, Cheveux Gras) and Jean Paul Rouve (winner of a César as best male newcomer in 2003 for Monsieur Batignole) received critical and industry plaudits. The other four members are Maurice Barthélémy, Pierre-François Martin Laval, Elise Larnicol and Pascal Vincent. Alain Chabat will direct, produce and also star in this film which is scheduled for its domestic release in 2004 by courtesy of Mars Distribution with StudioCanal handling international sales.
