Dany Boon Readies ‘Raid Dingue’ With Pathe, Artemis (EXCLUSIVE)

PARIS– Dany Boon, the actor/director of megahit of “Welcome To The Sticks” (“Bienvenue Chez Les Cht’is”) and “Nothing to Declare,” is set to make his fifth directorial outing with “Raid Dingue,” an action-packed laffer set in the world of France’s elite police.

“Raid” will shoot in France and Belgium starting late February.
