The American platform has just signed a multi-year contract covering several films with the star of "Lupine". Next wednesday, ell

Faced with the offensive, she unsheathed the checkbook.

"We are going to put a billion in so that, tomorrow, the Omar Sy remain in France with efficient structures and content", launched Roselyne Bachelot Thursday, October 14 on BFMTV about the contract just signed between the actor of "Lupine" and Netflix.

And the Minister of Culture to brandish a freshly stocked wallet by evoking the 400 million euros promised to support culture after the Covid-19, as well as France 2030, the investment plan presented by Emmanuel Macron to guarantee independence environmental, industrial, technological, health and cultural aspects of France.

The first French actor to "marry" with Netflix

Omar Sy was quick to respond, with humor, on Twitter. "The Omar Sy tells you that he is delighted with his existing collaboration with France Télé for years (





, etc.) and for the film

Tirailleurs which

we are finishing shooting today in France "... Certainly, the 43-year-old actor has just played the leading role in this feature film by Mathieu Vadepied, in which he plays a Senegalese rifleman during the 1914-1918 war. But the agreement signed with Netflix, which provides, over several years, the development of original films of which he will be an actor and executive producer, risks keeping him away from “traditional” cinema sets for a while.

In the spring, already, Omar Sy shot for Netflix "Tour de Force" by Louis Leterrier with Laurent Lafitte, a sequel to "On the other side of the periphery".

And he is about to resume his gentleman-burglar costume for the next round of episodes of "Lupine", the platform series which, in fact, has made him a planetary star ...

With his new contract, the actor revealed on Canal + and then césarized for his performance in “Intouchables” is the first French actor to “marry” with Netflix.

A deal already concluded by the streaming giant with actors Adam Sandler, Kevin Hart and Vanessa Kirby, and which recalls those with whom American studios enlisted their stars, from the 1920s to the early 1950s.

"8 rue de l'Humanité" expected Wednesday

While Netflix offers Omar Sy, another "national treasure" has just fallen in its nets: Dany Boon.

On Wednesday, October 20, the platform will put online “8 rue de l'Humanité”, a comedy on confinement by and with the director of “Bienvenue chez les Ch'tis”.

“Netflix is ​​a complementary medium to cinema,” he said during a preview.

"The film will be released everywhere, in more than 200 countries


and, for those who do not have Netflix, it will be broadcast on a major television channel, terrestrial, in a few months", he added. .

As it did with Dany Boon's comedy, in recent months, the Californian firm has invested heavily in other French fictions, series ("Plan coeur", "Family Business", "Grégory" ...) or films ( “Commuters”, “Lost Ball”, “Earth and Blood”…).

She is also preparing the next futuristic comedy by Jean-Pierre Jeunet ("Bigbug") and a stand-up series by Fanny Herrero, the screenwriter of "Ten percent".

Will it therefore soon be necessary to subscribe to Netflix to see the French stars of cinema and TV?

The chains and producers fear to see more and more French talents giving in to the sirens of the platform… which has not only very deep pockets, but in addition to an inestimable promise: that of an international notoriety.
