Direction of the film ” Mon ami Poly ” (My friend Poly)
After Belle & Sébastien, Nicolas Vanier wants to adapt a new soap opera by Cécile Aubry. This time, it will be the story of the endearing Poly, which should come out on the big screen at the end of next year.
In the 60s TV series, a little boy frees a pony from a circus in which he is badly treated. These two accomplices will go on to live a whole series of adventures. For this new adaptation, Nicolas Vanier has expressed the wish to revisit the story with a little girl, Pascale.
Currently in full shooting in the Gard, the director knew how to surround himself with beautiful headliners. Among them, François Cluzet, Patrick Timsit and Julie Gayet. But Nicolas Vanier has also put the region to contribution. Indeed, he did not hesitate to call upon the locals to carry out his casting. The extras in the future film are mainly from the region. They include people from Montclus, La Roque-Sur-Cèze, Goudargues and Bagnols-sur-Cèze.
