Starbuck to be remade in France

Vince Vaughn is to star in a reboot of Starbuck, which will now also be remade in France

Hit Canadian comedy Starbuck is set for a French remake.

The Quebecois movie - which already has a Hollywood reboot starring Vince Vaughn in the pipeline - will be reworked for a French audience, Variety reports.

The new film will star Gallic funnyman Jose Garcia and will be directed by Isabelle Doval.

The original movie - which made around three million dollars in France - followed a middle-aged layabout who discovers he has fathered hundreds of children through donating sperm.

Alain Pancrazi and Odile McDonald at Paris-based Made in PM have acquired the remake rights.

Odile said the new version "will keep the same concept while pushing the comedy further and tweaking some of the storyline to make the characters more relatable to French audiences".

Vince's version, which will apparently be called The Delivery Man, also stars Cobie Smulders and Chris Pratt. Vince and Cobie were spotted filming scenes for the flick in Brooklyn Heights, New York this week.

Trust your intuition about a domestic matter. If you think it's time to get a new place, start looking for one. You could find a home that cultivates tranquillity and relaxation. Escaping the fray will be a relief. Although you enjoy socialising, you also crave private time. Being able to watch movies, read books and listen to music replenishes your batteries. A needy relative could request help. This would be a good time to establish some healthy boundaries. Stop dropping everything for this relative's benefit.More
