Chris Tucker has his eyes set on Europe.

The comedian and Rush Hour actor recently revealed that his next project will be a French film…

In a recent interview with BlackFilm.com, Chris explains his involvement in the English version remake of  hit French film “The Intouchables”:

“I’ve seen it and yes, I have been talking with them (producers) about doing it,” he said. “I hope something will come out of it because I really like the movie and they are in the process of getting it together. So there’s a possibility that it might happen.”

The film is just in the beginning stages of development – producers are still rounding up key players like the director. Variety reported earlier this year that “Bridesmaids” director Paul Fieg was being recruited along with Colin Firth to play a co-starring role.

Based on a true story, “Intouchables” captures the unlikely pairing of a handicapped millionaire and his ex-con caretaker. Established in hilarious tragedy, the film was released in the U.S. over the summer, becoming the highest grossing foreign film in North America.

 Stay Tuned.
