After “OSS 117: Red Alert in Black Africa”, Jean Dujardin and Nicolas Bedos will soon return filming again with “Alphonse”, the first series directed by Nicolas Bedos.
“A new and crazy adventure. Filming imminent,” Nicolas Bedos announced via his Instagram account on Tuesday, who is embarking on his first serial production. Good news, shared at the same time by his friend Jean Dujardin.
Written and directed by Nicolas Bedos – César for Best Screenplay in 2020 for “La Belle Époque” – based on an original idea by the latter and his friend Jean Dujardin, the series broadcast on Prime Video will bring together a five-star cast.
In addition to the translator of “The Artist,” who will reveal “all the diversity of his talent,” according to a press release from Prime video, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Pierre Ardetti, and Nicole Garcia credit the casting for the cast. Produced by Alan Goldman, Alphonse will be broadcast in France and worldwide starting in November 2023.
Plot is still unclear
Little in the plot of this original creation presented by the platform as “a journey through self-discovery, delicious and irreverent” has yet to be nominated.
However, Jean Dujardin would retain the title role and would slip into the skin of Alphonse. The 49-year-old actor will play a “chameleon” whose mission is to please women and satisfy all their desires, however he defines Variety, based on revelations from producer Alan Goldman. “Alphonse will be a colorful show, with a very avant-garde and original story about the relationship between men and women that I believe will resonate powerfully around the world,” he said.
However, his story should take place in Paris, as the poster revealed on Tuesday suggests, but could also lead characters to Nice, if we are to believe the hashtags Jean Dujardin shared in his Instagram post. Filming is expected to begin in June.
