Omar Sy To Play Arsene Lupin In Netflix Series

“The Intouchables” and “Jurassic World” star Omar Sy has been cast as gentleman thief and master of disguise Arsene Lupin in a new French original TV series.

Gaumont Television will produce this contemporary adaptation of the novels penned by Maurice LeBlanc, who created the character in 1905, and is slated to premiere it globally on Netflix in 2020.

The books have been adapted into multiple TV series and movies over the years, but this will be the first to feature a black actor in the title role.
