Based on a Belgian comic series by Phillippe Francq and Jean Van Hamme, and already adapted into a successful 33 episode European television series, Largo Winch revolves around a young man who was adopted by a wealthy billionaire industrialist named Nerio Winch as a child. When his adoptive father is murdered, the boy must take action to discover his father’s killers and protect his estate. The film is described by its director Jerome Salle, as a slick and stylish action-adventure movie, on the same international scale as the James Bond films. Very lofty ambitions, but let’s see how good the film is, right? Paolo Seganti played Largo Winch in the TV series, and Tomer Sisley will play him in the film, which premieres in France tomorrow, with other European countries to follow.
The only actor I seem to recognize is Kristin Scott Thomas, whose voice is dubbed in French in the trailer.
