First Pic: OSS 117 Rio Ne Répond Plus

The first pic for hotly anticipated spy comedy OSS 117: Rio Ne Répond Plus (literal translation OSS 117: Rio Isn’t Answering Anymore) has just hit the web. The 30 million dollar (big budget) movie will follow the hugely successful OSS 117: Cairo, Nest Of Spies and will premiere in France and Belgium in April 2009.

Superstar Jean Dujardin returns as special agent Hubert Bonisseur De La Bath in the film which, according to him, will spoof the Roger Moore Bond flicks, whereas the first movie was influenced by the Sean Connery ones (who really loves the movie by the way). Whatever happened to George Lazenby?

The films are inspired, but actually have very little in common with, a series of more serious-minded novels started by prolific author Jean Bruce in 1949.
