Vincent Cassel is in negotiations to reprise his role as the charismatic criminal Yann Le Pentrec aka Dobermann. Tchéky Karyo is attached to return to the role of Inspector Crisitini, Dobermann’s chief adversary.

Joël Houssin, who penned the original, is on board for the new script.

Rionda Del Castro and Thompson will produce, with Gwénaëlle Imbault of N&Co serving as co-producer and Patricia Eberle as executive producer. Rionda Del Castro’s Hannibal Classics will handle world sales on the picture.
