French cartoon turns hip-hop
Movie based on cult TV series ‘Les Lascars’

“French suburban hip-hop culture is coming to the bigscreen in an all-star animated pic voiced by the likes Diam’s, France’s biggest-selling pop artist. Voice talents include Diane Krueger, mistress of ceremonies at this year’s Cannes, and Vincent Cassel. The €10 million ($13.5 million) pic includes an American version, with such artists as L.A. rapper Fat Lip.

The French version, which includes improvised humor, is practically finished, and animation will begin this summer. Pic will be distributed by Bac Films, subsid of producer Millimages, with coin from Canal Plus and pubcaster France 2, co-producing.

Movie is based on the cult TV series “Les Lascars” — which aired on MTV as “Round da Way.” The 30 x 1 min Gallic show was an instant hit when it aired on Canal Plus seven years ago, but has grown to become an Internet phenom, with pirated Arab and Creole-language versions, as well as the original French and English versions, popular on sites such as YouTube. Show was most watched program on Orange and SFR mobile phones last year, with more than 600,000 hits.”
