Gerard Depardieu has joined the cast of the first film in Jean-Francois Richet’s two-film project about infamous gangster Jacques Mesrine says The Hollywood Reporter.
“L’Instinct de Mort” (Death Instinct) and “L’Ennemi Public no.1” (Public Enemy No. 1), penned by Abdel Raouf Dafri and produced by Thomas Langmann’s production company La Petite Reine, will highlight the murders and mysteries surrounding Mesrine, played by Vincent Cassel.
Depardieu will play Mesrine’s fellow gangster and mentor in “Instinct,” and familiar faces Marion Cotillard and Eva Green also are rumored to be attached to the near $50 million projects.
The confirmed cast for “Enemy” includes Samuel Le Bihan, Olivier Gourmet, Jean-Pierre Cassel and Gilles Lellouche.
