Un Monde Truqué retakes production

27 November 2012

Well it looks like the path for production and release of French bd legend Tardi’s Un Monde Truqué has just been cleared … once again.

In production since only-god-knows-when (over 5 years, already in 2009 this was big news, then last summer we were re-reassured the film was again in the right pipe…) “Un Monde Truqué” just got the support from Arte France Cinéma who apparently shall be co-participating in the project funding in what will be their first feature animated film…

If not, production should re-start next summer and Je Suis Bien Content (the studio behind the critically acclaimed Persepolis adaptation or the more recent Le jour des corneilles) will continue behind the artistic maneuvers with directors  Christian Desmares & Franck Ekinci, the scenario co-created by  Benjamin Legrand and the artistic supervision of Jacques Tardi himself.

Time will tell if this steamy and Napoleonic VI-reigned scenario will finally come to our theaters in 2014 or … but if we believe ARTE’s own PR things should come.
