Colin Firth is in early talks to star in “Untouchable”, the English-language remake of French box office hit “The Intouchables”, for the Weinstein Company reports Variety.
“Bridesmaids” director Paul Feig is in early negotiations to write and direct this new take on Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache’s dramedy which itself will get a U.S. limited release in late May.
Based on a true story, this follows a wealthy aristocrat who suffers a tragic accident that leaves him a quadriplegic.
He goes through several caretakers before bonding with a young, troubled caregiver, and the seemingly mismatched duo end up learning a lot from each other.
Nicolas Duval-Adassovsky will produce and shooting aims to kick off in the Fall.
