After Dans une galaxie près de chez vous, Quebeckers will see another cinematographic adaptation of a homegrown hit TV series. In fact, Lance et compte's trailer is already online and the film will hit Quebec's theatres on November 26, 2010.
The film talks about the National, a professional hockey team hailing from Quebec City. After an exhibition game in a small town, the players of the National must go back to Quebec City on the team's bus. However, because of an accident, half of the players in the team are dead. Besides, the team's general manager has to rebuild the National.
As always, Réjean Tremblay will pen the film's story and will be the producer alongside Caroline Héroux. Speaking about the director, it will be Frédéric D'Amours.
The film will star Marc Messier, Marina Orsini, Carl Marotte, Jason Roy-Léveillée, Denis Bouchard, Raymond Bouchard, Yvan Ponton, Hélène Florent, Pat Kiely, Elias Scoufaras and James A. Woods.
