Iconic figure of a cult film from the late 1970s, Pierre Richard shows very little enthusiasm at the announcement of a remake project.
However, over 40 years after the original, this new version managed to captivate the audience upon its release.
Pierre Richard, a monument of French cinematography, candidly expresses his lack of belief in the return of a cult film.
At eighty-eight years old, Pierre is a true monument of French cinematography.
For several decades, his characters have influenced an entire generation.
However, when this legendary actor hears about the adaptation project of a famous film in which he starred, commonly known as “the tall blond,” he displayed rather pessimism.
“It’s nonsense, and in my opinion, they will fail,” judged the actor, clearly opposed to the idea of seeing a new version of the film released in 1976, which became a pillar of French comedy.
It’s “Le Jouet,” where the actor finds himself truly at the mercy of his employer’s son.
In 2022, its modified version titled “The New Toy” is released in theaters despite the actor’s anxiety about the decline approaching rapidly.
“Every time they attempt remakes, it has been a failure. Especially French adaptations of French films, that’s the height of it,” he found.
