Alain Chabat Becomes A “Dubber”

French actor Alain Chabat (“Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian”) is attached to play the titular role in the buddy comedy “The Dubber” for Focus Features reports Variety.

The film centers on a man who provides the French dubbing voice for a top Hollywood star. When the A-lister has an on-set meltdown and goes missing, the dubber travels to the U.S. to help find him.

Richard Raddon and filmmaker Marina Zenovich (“Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired”) came up with the idea. A script was then penned by David Gilcreast and writer-director Jay Chandrasekhar, with a second draft by Mark and Jay Duplass (“Baghead”).
