Pigalle, la nuit — American remake in development

4Rights, the acquisition branch of Channel 4, acquired the rights to produce an english-speaking version of Pigalle, la nuit, the Canal+ esoteric thriller that aired in November/December 2009 over here.

Pigalle, la nuit lasted a single season (8 episodes, 52 minutes each) and this american version, developed for a premium cable channel, would last 12-13 episodes.

The first season would be set in Moscow and would depict the russian mob. If the production company goes through with this, the writing and casting would be underway this year with filming starting in late 2012.

If this remake of Pigalle, la nuit were to be renewed, the following seasons would be set elsewhere in the world, but always within shady networks (prostitution, gun trafficking, etc).

A few characters from the original french version could appear in this remake - he's not named but I assume they mean the russian guy, Dimitri (it's been more than 2 years since I've seen the show but I'm not sure that Dimitri could be in a condition allowing him to be a part of this show, but except him I don't see why any other character would be in Moscow).

Here's the cast of Pigalle, la nuit, a series written and directed by Hervé Hadmar & Marc Herpoux (who also created Les oubliées in 2007 and Signature in 2011 (6 episodes each)) :

— Sara Martins (Signature, Meurtre au paradis) as Fleur.
— Simon Abkarian (Les beaux mecs, Kaboul Kitchen) as Nadir.

— Jalil Lespert (Virgil, Le petit lieutenant) as Thomas.
— Armelle Deutsch (Elodie Bradford, Un village français) as Emma.
— Catherine Mouchet (Thérèse, Rue des plaisirs) as Alice.

— Yasmine Belmadi (Qui a tué Bambi ?) as Jamil.
— Linh-Dam Pham (Dante 01, Tout ce qui brille) as Sinh.
— Eric Ruf (Mon ange, L'homme qui voulait vivre sa vie) as Dimitri.

— Archie Shepp (no acting credit before the show) as Max.
— Clio Baran (Molière, Signature) as Hélène.
— Hubert Koundé (1788 et demi, Braquo) as Adam.
— Pom Klementieff (Loup, L'amour dure 3 ans) as Sandra.

And here's the opening sequence of the show :

By the way, not that anyone cares, but last night was the premiere of the sixth season of Dexter on Canal+. Watched by an average of 950,000 viewers (16% of the people with a subscription to Canal+), episodes 6.01 and 6.02 are the most watched episodes in Dexter's history (on the first viewing only), according to toutelatélé.com. However, it remains inferior to the launch of other Canal+ acquisitions such as 24 (the seventh day of 24 started with 1.2 million viewers).

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.
