Rachid Bouchareb directing multi-language project from Larry Gross screenplay.

Patrick Wachsberger and his Lionsgate International team have begun talks with buyers on Rachid Bouchareb’s multi-language action comedy Belleville Cop starring Omar Sy.

Production has begun in Paris on the story of Baaba, a police officer who has refused promotions so he can continue to work in his beloved working class neighbourhood.

When a childhood friend from Miami gets killed after he comes to warn of encroaching drug gangs, Baaba moves to Miami and teams up with a local officer to bring down the criminals.

Sy, who broke out in 2012 smash Intouchables, stars with Luis Guzman, Algerian actress Biyouna, Julie Ferrier, Franck Gastambide and Diem Ngyen. Another 48 Hrs. co-writer Larry Gross wrote the screenplay.

Davis Films’ Samuel Hadida will produce Belleville Cop with Tessalit Films, and Hadida’s Metropolitan FilmExport will distribute in France in late spring 2018 and holds Us rights.

Do We Really Need Coming to America 2?

Do We Really Need Coming to America 2?
The 1980s seem to have come back in an odder way than we could have ever imagined. In 2017, we have a President who is a former reality TV star. In the 1980s, we had a President who was a former actor. Today, we have social media running our lives and giving us innumerable ways to compete with each other. In the 1980s, MTV had us under its thumb. It made us compete with one other about being the first to see the new media known as music videos. And now, in 2017, there's talk of Eddie Murphy writing and actually making a sequel to 1988's wildly successful Coming to America, which, like the first movie, will be released by Paramount Pictures.

Today's cinematic landscape is mired in nostalgia. For most of the 1990s and 2000s, we had films that looked back fondly (and not so fondly) at the go-go times of the 1970s.

Dumb and Dumber To’s Badness Could Give You an Ulcer

Dumb and Dumber To’s Badness Could Give You an Ulcer
Before I go into the grinding awfulness of Dumb and Dumber To, let’s get one damn thing straight: The original Dumb and Dumber is a clasick. Along with the relatively highbrow Stepbrothers, it’s the ne plus ultra of moron slapstick, the film against which all cretinous child-men assaults on taste must be measured. The spiky, manic, abrasive Jim Carrey was exquisitely offset by the big, schlubby, amiable Jeff Daniels, and if a few of the gags went thunk (who bats 1,000?), there was a lot more art in their construction than the movie’s slapdash frames suggested. The Farrelly brothers, Peter and Bobby, turned doofusness into a state of grace. And now they’ve turned it back into a state of gracelessness. Wanna read the most annoying sound in the world? Aaaeeeeeaaaeiiiigghhhhheeeaaehh.It’s not that they didn’t try. This isn’t some cynical piece of garbage like

What's The Word On 'Bullet To The Head'?

What's The Word On 'Bullet To The Head'?
Los Angeles — Like the amped up comeback tour of two rockers who had their heyday sometime in the mid-'80s, Sylvester Stallone and director Walter Hill ("48 Hrs.," "The Warriors") join forces for a hard-hitting exercise in beefy, brainless fun with the New Orleans-set actioner "Bullet to the Head."

Taking its B-grade scenario à la lettre, this assassin-cop buddy movie aims to accomplish little more than delivering tons of kinetic wham-bam fight sequences and Lol one-liners, which Stallone recites from a face that seems literally frozen in time. Independently financed, "Bullet" should target decent crowds, especially abroad, though will play best on the small screen.

Adapted by Alessandro Camon ("The Messenger") from the French comic book series by Matz, the film shifts the setting from New York to New Orleans (tax credits, anyone?), though that location is never officially named – and, like many things in this fast and easy shoot `em up,

Thn’s Top Ten ‘Buddy Cop’ Films

To compliment the release of 21 Jump Street in the UK, and because we thought it might make you feel warm and fuzzy inside, we’re taking a look back at some of the more prominent ‘buddy cop’ films to have entertained us over the years.

In The Heat Of The Night (1967) was arguably the first to fully adopt the ‘reluctant-but-unavoidable-partnership’ scenario that, in spite of its simplistic formula, is still a mainstay in the film industry today.

Check out our ten favourites below…

48 Hrs (1982)

One’s a hard boiled cop, one’s a wise-cracking criminal…

Walter Hill’s explosive comedy revolves around Jack Cates (Nick Nolte) and the criminal who is forced into his custody, Reggie Hammond (Eddie Murphy). The duo must put aside their differences in order to try and achieve a common goal: the capturing of a stone cold killer, Albert Ganz (James Remar).

48 Hrs marked the feature film debut of Eddie Murphy,

Av Room: Fast Five Blu-Ray Combo Pack

Fast Five Blu-Ray Combo Pack Universal Home Entertainment 2011/130 & 132 mins/Rated & Unrated List Price: $34.99 – Available October 4, 2011 A lot can change in a decade. Is the Fast and the Furious series really that old? I remember on April 28, 2001, exactly ten years ago, I got the chance to see the first installment in what has become a money making franchise. This was actually the original date the film was to be released, but Universal Pictures felt they had a summer hit on their hands and pushed it back to Friday June 22. Yet I got the chance to see the pic two months early through one of those market research groups. I'll admit it, I found the film rather underwhelming. After seeing trailers for the feature through much of the Winter, I thought Rob Cohen had made a nice little crime thriller. Twenty minutes into the film, the thing took a 180 for me when

Walter Hill To Officially Give Sly Stallone His ‘Headshot’

We previously reported that Sylverster Stallone was courting Walter Hill to direct Headshot after Wayne Kramer dropped out over creative differences. And what a sexy courting that must have been. Now, an email to Aint It Cool’s inbox from Stallone makes it official. Even setting aside that this is an action film, and that Stallone will finally get to work with Hill, I’m just excited to see Hill get back to work. His output has been spotty in the past decades, and it’s mostly been low-budget action flown under the radar. This promises to be a higher-profile flick that could see Hill back on top of his game. The last really great film he directed was Another 48 Hrs. back in 1990 (unless you just really love Wild Bill), so while Stallone has hit the cinema world again, this would be a lazarus act for Hill. This would obviously work best with Hill writing from

This Weekend in Box Office History: Comparisons for June 18-20, 2010

Here's a look back at past weekends comparable to June 18-20, 2010: 5 Years Ago - 2005 Fighting the stigma of the franchise's previous flame-out, Batman Begins had a relatively quieter start than its predecessors, but it was still popular out-of-the-gate. The movie, which was tasked with rebuilding the franchise, pulled in $48.7 million at 3,858 sites over the weekend, tallying $72.9 million since its Wednesday debut. Mr. & Mrs. Smith was second with $26 million, down a standard 48 percent from its opening. The weekend's only other nationwided release was Hilary Duff vehicle The Perfect Man, which was a non-starter with $5.3 million at 2,087 sites. * Weekend Report: 'Batman' Begins in the Shadows 10 Years Ago - 2000 Shaft claimed the top spot with $21.7 million at 2,337 locations, which was a solid but unspectacular showing for the Samuel L. Jackson-headlined remake of the 1971 movie of the same name. In second, Gone in 60 Seconds slowed 41 percent in its second weekend, grossing $14.9 million,

This Weekend in Box Office History: Comparisons for June 11-13, 2010

Here's a look back at past weekends comparable to June 11-13, 2010: 5 Years Ago - 2005 Mr. & Mrs. Smith was awash in gossip surrounding stars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's relationship, but such chatter happened to fit the movie, which mostly appealed with its fun battle-of-the-sexes premise and slick summer action. The picture raked in $50.3 million at 3,424 theaters in its opening, overshadowing everything else in the market. Robert Rodriguez's The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3D (featuring Taylor Lautner in his first major role) failed to become the next Spy Kids, making $12.6 million at 2,655 sites. The Honeymooners, an adaptation of the classic sitcom, was annulled out-of-the-gate with $5.5 million at 1,912 sites. Meanwhile, hyped French horror High Tension was ignored in its 1,323-theater release, grossing $1.9 million. * Weekend Report: 'Mr. & Mrs. Smith' Honeymoons at the Top 10 Years Ago - 2000 Positioned as an over-the-top action bonanza on this weekend like The A-Team this year,

How Many 'Great' Comedy Sequels Can You Name? One? Two? More?

Today Universal released Get Him to the Greek, a sort-of sequel to 2008's Forgetting Sarah Marshall as it uses Aldous Snow who had a small role in the original. Beyond that, there is only a brief reference to Sarah Marshall, which has me thinking it's not really a sequel as much as it is a spin-off. The same could be said for a movie like Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001)... Same characters, but not really a sequel to Clerks, which ended up having its own sequel in 2006.

In a debate with a group of fellow Seattle critics trying to decide if Get Him to the Greek was a sequel to Forgetting Sarah Marshall or not, the topic turned to comedy sequels in general and I was asked to name a great comedy sequel. Should be easy... right?

I started mining my memory banks, and started thinking of movies with

Mickey Rourke Grabs Another Role

Wow, Mickey Rourke keeps getting busier and busier. The latest film for the Oscar nominee is St. Vincent, an indie action-thriller from Occpuant Films and Secret Handshake Entertainment. Occpuant previously produced the Sundance hit The Wackness. St. Vincent centers on a hit man returning to his former New York City neighborhood to finish off the botched killing of an informant. He's then forced to masquerade as a priest and finds himself taking the confessions of his target. Walter Hill, who directed Rourke in the 1989 gangster tale Johnny Handsome, is helming the project, based on an original script by Cameron Young. Hill’s other credits include Last Man Standing, The Warriors, Brewster's Millions and the Eddie Murphy cop flick 48 Hrs. and its sequel, Another 48 Hrs. Rourke’s upcoming films include The Expendables, Iron Man 2 and Broken Horses. He’s currently filming a remake of the French thriller 13 Tzameti, which
