Interview | Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano talk ‘Untouchable’

Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano have been writing and directing films with each other since 1995. Their latest collaboration, French Oscar hopeful Untouchable (2011), has been a worldwide hit, breaking box office records and winning notable awards. The movie tells the story of the friendship between affluent paraplegic Philippe (François Cluzet) and his carer from the suburbs Driss (Omar Sy).

Native Kiwi Karl Urban has been lucky enough to be a part of many popular movie franchises during his 20-year career, including The Lord of the Rings and, more recently, J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek reboot. Next year, Urban will return to the Enterprise for the eagerly-anticipated sequel, but this month audiences will get to see him – sans the upper part of his face – in gritty comic book adaptation Dredd 3D, in which he plays the titular Judge. On behalf of CineVue, I was invited to a session of interviews with the star and screenwriter Alex Garland, where there was talk of preparations, narrative decisions, and sequel possibilities.
