Next Up From Wes Anderson: My Best Friend


Reading the description of the 2006 French comedy Mon meilleur ami (My Best Friend), it sounds perfectly Wes Anderson-y, so it's no wonder that Anderson has signed on to write and possibly direct a remake of the film. Variety explains the movie's plot:

The French pic starred Daniel Auteuil as a cranky antiques dealer who learns at a dinner with his closest acquaintances that none of them really like him because of his harsh manner and selfishness. When his business partner bets him a valuable vase that he can’t produce a best friend, the dealer tries to get an amiable cab driver to pose as his buddy.

Anderson's most recent project is an animated adaptation of Roald Dahl's The Fantastic Mr. Fox.

Have you seen My Best Friend? Can you see a remake in Wes Anderson's hands?

I loved My Best Friend, but I can't imagine it redone in English.

I´ve actually seen My best friend at the cinema earlier this year. Its a funny movie, with a very French type of humour. I´d guess Wes Anderson could do a good remake, he´s great director, but I´m wary of remakes in general.
