Star of film The Artist and all-around charming guy Jean Dujardin is probably going to be getting a lot more attention now that he’s won a Golden Globe for his work on Michel Hazanavicius’ well-liked silent film throwback. As a matter of fact, The Hollywood Reporter already has word of a project in Dujardin’s future that has my interest peaked.

The Artist producer Thomas Langmann has told the trade that his next project will be a remake of Claude Berri’s 1977 French release One Wild Moment (Un moment d’égarement), a film that was about two adult best friends running into some issues when one of their daughters falls for the other. You know, romantically. If that plot sounds familiar to you, maybe that’s because One Wild Moment has already been remade once, as the 1984 English language film Blame It On Rio, which starred names like Michael Caine and Demi Moore and had some sweet boobs in it if my pubescent self is remembering correctly.

This latest remake sounds even more appealing than that, however, because it’s taking Hollywood’s new darling Dujardin and pairing him with Vincent Cassel, who is one of my favorite working actors, period. Nobody who has seen The Artist, whether they particularly cared for that film or not, can deny the magnetism that Dujardin brings to the screen, and Cassel is one of those rare presences that keeps your focus directed on him no matter how little he’s doing, so it should be a good time watching these two larger than life actors duke it out for screen superiority.
