by Nancy Snipper
It’s been 10 years since we met the odd couple of cops, and nine years
in the script conception on the part of the bad cop of the duo – Patrick Huard
who is also one of the producers along with François Flamand and Pierre Even
(Item 7) with Seville as the distributor.

I had the rare chance to speak to the Alain DesRochers, the director of
the movie which starts shooting May 22 and is slated to come out summer 2017.
Hailing from Ottawa, he told me he is a real Canadian, and loves the idea of
breaking down language barriers through the two cops reunited, bringing
Montreal and Toronto together – the Anglo and Québécois guys – true buddies who
no longer butt heads. Fresh eyes surely will enrich the vitality of the film,
though the two protagonists are ten years older. Indeed, no novice to the
craft, DesRochers has earned his own badge, having directed Nitro, Nitro Rush and Musée Eden. Always humbleDesRochers said, “It’s an honour to
direct these two great actors.”
He also revealed it was a challenge to do a comedic action film while
ensuring to highlight the serious and sinister elements – to keep them strong
Producer François Flamand – and co-producer Pierre Even concurred –highlighted
that the main raison d’être of reuniting the pair of unlikely but awfully
likeable cops: “Everyone wanted to see them again. And this time, it is going
to big much bigger in scope than the first film.”
Once again, the bilingual film with subtitles in both languages (Pierre
Even highlighted that the first one set a precedent for subtitling this way),
stars Colm Feore as Martin Ward – the bon (good) cop and Patrick Huard as David
Bouchard – the bad cop. This action thriller is sure to be another blockbuster
(the greatest audience success of any Canadian film marked the first one –
directed by Eric Canuel. I can hardly wait to see it!
