The play Les belles-soeurs, one of the great classics of Quebec theatre, will be brought to the big screen in a musical drama directed by director René Richard Cyr, we learned on Thursday.
This film project piloted by the Cinémaginaire production box (Les Invasions Barbares, De père en cop) is one of the nine fiction feature films that obtained funding from the Society for the Development of Cultural Enterprises (SODEC), Thursday morning. It will be an adaptation of the successful musical production that René Richard Cyr himself created on stage a dozen years ago from Michel Tremblay's masterpiece. René Richard Cyr will write the screenplay and direct the film Les belles-sœurs.
Other projects supported by SODEC include Ababouiné, the new offering of the enfant terrible of Quebec cinema, André Forcier (L'eau chaud, l'eau frette, Le Vent du Wyoming), and Mlle Bottine, a children's film inspired by the Conte pour tous Bach and Bottine.
