Seven years after his last film adventure, Petit Nicolas will be back on the big screen on October 20. And the trailer shows us that he’s going to go looking for treasure so he doesn’t have to move out and leave his friends.
Little Nicolas is back … and he risks leaving far from his friends. When his father (now played by Jean-Paul Rouve, and more Kad Merad) gets a promotion, the hero created by René Goscinny and Sempé learns that he will have to move. His classmates then consider two possibilities: go on a hunger strike, to the chagrin of the glutton Alceste, or go in search of a treasure.
After two opuses directed by Laurent Tirard, in 2010 and 2014, this third live adaptation of the adventures of Petit Nicolas has been entrusted to Julien Rappeneau, director of Rosalie Blum and Fourmi who had made his classes as a screenwriter, on Mais qui killed Pamela Rose ?, Largo Winch or Cloclo.
While Audrey Lamy succeeds Valérie Lemercier in the role of the mother of the hero, the feature film is presented as a sequel as well as a reboot.
In the middle of a cast in which we also find Pierre Arditi, François Morel, Grégory Gadebois, Jean-Pierre Darroussin or Adeline D’Hermy, the young hero is played by Ilan Debrabant. Who is not a novice in the world of cinema, since we have already seen him in Roulez jeunesse with Eric Judor, 10 jours sans Maman alongside Franck Dubosc or even We will finish together, the sequel to Les Petits mouchoirs.
On October 20, he will be the headliner of the Treasure of Little Nicolas. And this while an animated feature film, entitled Parfum d’enfance, is in preparation, directed by Amandine Fredon and Benjamin Massoubre, while Yvan Attal was for a time attached to the project.
