, instead refocusing on the story of a couple who confront each other about the financial conditions of their divorce. The film will pit Roschdy Zem against Bérénice Bejo. Lafosse co-wrote the movie with Fanny Burdino, Thomas Van Zuylen (who is also credited for writing Les Chevaliers Blancs) and, more surprisingly, Mazarine Pingeot. The film will be shot in Brussels, and produced by Versus, which has been a partner of Lafosse's ever since Private Lessons [+see also:

The other feature to have been accepted during the 53rd session is completely at the other end of Lafosse's cinematic spectrum, as it will be the third instalment of The Visitors. More than 17 years after the second instalment (and 20 years after the first one), Jean-Marie Poiré will once again summon Jacquouille (Christian Clavier) and Godefroid de Montmirail (Jean Réno) to appear before his camera; this time, they have been thrust into the middle of the French Revolution, reportedly to be joined by Karin Viard, Frank Dubosc and Sylvie Testud. Given that it is a Belgian co-production, audiences will also come across several local actors, such as Jean-Luc Couchard and Christelle Cornil, who appear regularly in big-budget French comedies: the former appeared in Dikkenek, Taxi 4 [+see also:

. Gaumont is in charge of production. The title will, for the most part, be shot in Eastern Europe, but the production will also spend 12 days filming in Wallonia. Nexus Factory will manage the Belgian part of the shoot and the post-production.

Interestingly, Wallimage is also supporting La Rentrée des Classes, the upcoming short film by Patar and Aubier, which recounts the next part of the adventures of Cowboy, Indian and Horse, following La Bûche de Noël, which was nominated for the César Awards and came out in theatres as part of a screening session entitled Panique chez les jouets (lit. “Panic at the Toys' House”).
