Michele Placido is preparing to film his next venture in France. The project is Le Guetteur with a possible English title of The Lookout. Perhaps he just wanted to get away from the arguments and controversy surrounding his last film Vallanzasca – Gli angeli del male, Vallanzasca – Flowers of Evil , released a few weeks ago here in Italy , it has already found itself at the bottom of the box office turnover. The film was a good watch , perhaps real crime stories are just not what we need at the moment. The stars of this french venture are Daniel Auteuil , one of my favorite French Actors,who will play head of the police , with the equally charming Mathieu Kassovit who will be playing the gangster. All sounds good to me,hope we will get to see it without the usual dubbing. I understand filming will start in June 2011.
