Salma Hayek, Jean Reno to Star in ‘The Krostons’

Salma Hayek and Jean Reno are set to star in the family laffer “The Krostons.”

Helmed by Frederic Du Chau (“Underdog,” “Racing Stripes”), the film centers on videogame designer Maxinne, who finds herself under pressure to come up with a new idea and copies three characters from an old book. The characters, named Krostons, then come to life and wreak havoc in their quest for world domination.

Krostons characters were created in 1968 by Belgium cartoonists Paul Deliege and Arthur Piroton and first appeared in Spirou magazine alongside other characters, including the Smurfs, which have also transitioned onto the bigscreen.

The film is being produced by Olivier Legrand for Paris-based Le studio d’Imagination along with Mark Ordesky and Jane Fleming for Los Angeles-based Court Five.

Court Five is representing the producers for the U.S sale.
