‘Choristes’ helmer strikes upbeat note

Is there a remake in the future?

HOLLYWOOD — After “Les Choristes” unspooled at the Variety Screening Series, helmer Christophe Barratier joked that any movie involving kids going away for their education would be greenlit easily, thanks to the success of “Les Choristes” and the Harry Potter movies.

So, given its success at home, will there be a U.S. redo for “Les Choristes”?

“I hope this movie will be enough known in America to avoid a remake,” he retorted to ArcLight applause.

Pete Hammond moderated the Nov. 11 sesh.
