Novem, a production company owned by TV host Véronique Cloutier, announced the production of many feature films. In fact, the first one is called Cabotins. It will be in Quebec's theatres on July 23, 2010.
The film was directed by Alain Desrochers, scripted by Ian Lauzon and produced with a budget of $4,800,000.
It tells the story of Marcel (Rémy Girard), a former actor and producer of variety shows. He now lives in the countryside. Moreover, his wife left him and he's financially down on his luck. In order to get his life back on track, he goes to Montreal in order to recruit former colleagues. Indeed, Marcel wants to make a reunion stage show. Marcel will come across Lady Moon (Yves Jacques), a transvestite; Lucie (Dorothée Berryman), a comedian; and Roger (Gilles Renaud), an old crooner. The three of them accept, but insist that Marcel hires Pedro (Pierre-François Legendre), Marcel's son. However, Marcel and Pedro are at loggerheads and don't have the same conception of popular theatre.
The film also star Marie-Ève Milot (Mirador), Gaston Lepage (Que Dieu bénisse l'Amérique), Guy Nadon (Vice caché), Louis Morissette (Romaine par moins 30), Sophie Faucher (Le coeur a ses raisons) and Bianca Gervais (Nitro).
