After “Divorce Club” and “30 days max”, the tandem of YouTubers McFly and Carlito is about to shoot in a new feature film: “Asterix and Obelix: the Middle Empire”. Guillaume Canet kept his promise after a lost bet. Explanations.
“If you win, I offer you a role in my next film …“We keep our word! Almost two years after having launched this sentence to McFly and Carlito, Guillaume Canet will indeed invite the duo of Youtubers to participate in his new shoot.
Both will be in the credits of Asterix and Obelix: the Middle Empire, filming of which begins next week. They will precisely play the roles of Radius and Cubitus.

This is not the first time that McFly and Carlito have offered themselves a role like this in a French feature film. We could see them recently in 30 jours max and Divorce Club, two French comedies released in 2020. The principle is simple: the tandem invites personalities, launches them a bet, and if they lose, it’s won to play in their next film!
“For the people watching us, it’s crazy what’s happening to us! The biggest boosted! Michaël Youn had come for an anecdote competition and he promised us a role in his film. His film is called Divorce Club and we play in it. He kept his word!“, McFly jokes in the program in which he received Guillaume Canet and Gilles Lellouche, with his accomplice Carlito.

“It’s not bad this show … So you invite all the reals with whom you want to work! Hop hop hop!“responds tit for tat Gilles Lellouche.”It wasn’t planned but it’s happening. I think it’s gonna become a new rule of the anecdote contest“, says Carlito.
