Chris Rock has scored the English-language remake rights to 2009 French feature “La premiere toile” (“The First Star”) says Variety.
The story follows a black family who leave their working-class hood to take to the ski slopes. That’s considered a social faux pas in the stuffy resort. Rock will write the remake’s screenplay and produce.
This isn’t the first time he’s done a French remake, his 2007 film “I Think I Love My Wife” was a remake of 1972’s “Chloe in the Afternoon”. Rock can next be seen in the British comedy remake “Death at a Funeral”.
