On the occasion of the broadcast of the comedy Les Vieux Fourneaux tonight on France 3, we take stock of its freshly shot sequel.
In 2018, grandpas Pierre Richard, Eddy Mitchell and Roland Giraud arrived at the cinema in the adaptation of the successful comic Les Vieux Fourneaux. A film by Christophe Duthuron which attracted 939,040 spectators in theaters, enough for the team to reform four years later for a new adventure.
Entitled Les Vieux Fourneaux 2: Bons pour Asile, this sequel was shot last October and November in the Gers with again Pierre Richard (Pierrot), Eddy Mitchell (Emile) and Alice Pol (Sophie) but not Roland Giraud (Antoine), replaced by Bernard Le Coq.
Still directed by Christophe Duthuron, the film will tell how, to come to the aid of migrants he was hiding in Paris, Pierrot leads them in the South-West to Antoine who himself is already welcoming Mimile, in full recapture in love with Berthe.
Expecting to find calm and pleasure in the countryside, the six refugees will especially taste the legendary hospitality of a French village. The perfect opportunity to shake off the fears and prejudices for Sophie and our three Old Furnaces, promoted to unexpected consultants of an electoral campaign that Larquebuse, the mayor of Montcoeur is not ready to forget.
The release date of this second episode has not yet been revealed.
