'Largo Winch' In Theatres on Jan. 15

Guess what? Hollywood doesn't own the monopoly for cinematographic adaptations of comic books. In fact, Largo Winch, a French film adapted from a comic book penned by Jean Van Hamme and drawn by Philippe Francq, came out in France in 2008. Now, depending of where you live in Canada (preferably in Quebec?), the film will hit theatres on January 15, 2010.


Synopsis:

Nerio Winch (Miki Manojlovic), a billionaire, is found drowned. His death seems suspect given that he's the founder and the majority shareholder of the W Group, an economic empire. Although the other shareholders haven't got wind of any inheritors designated by Nerio, he has a secret: he has a son, Largo (Tomer Sisley), who was taken from an Eastern European orphanage. However, despite being innocent, Largo is thrown in a jail located in the Amazonian jungle for drug trafficking. Therefore comes this question: do the assassination of Nerio Winch and the imprisonment of his son hide a conspiracy from someone who wants to take over the W Group?

Also starring: Kristin Scott Thomas, Mélanie Thierry, Gilbert Melki and Karel Roden.

Directed by: Jérôme Salle (Anthony Zimmer).
