Incroyable Mais Vrai is set to star Alain Chabat, Léa Drucker, Benoît Magimel and Anaïs Demoustier. The script centres on Alain and Marie as they move to the banlieue house of their dreams. But the real estate agent did warn them: whatever is in the basement may very well change their lives… Handled by Atelier de Production, the feature film already has the support of the Ile-de-France region. French distribution will be handled by Diaphana and international sales by WTFilms.
