The Weinstein Company has announced that the untitled English-language remake of the critically-acclaimed and box office hit The Intouchables, starring Bryan Cranston and Kevin Hart, will open nationwide March 9, 2018.

Directed by Neil Burger (Divergent, Limitless) from a script written by Jon Hartmere, the film chronicles the unexpected friendship between Phillip Lacasse (Cranston), a Park Avenue billionaire left paralyzed after a hang-gliding accident, and convicted felon Dell (Hart), recently released from prison and in need of a job and a fresh start. From worlds apart, Phillip and Dell form an unlikely bond, bridging heir differences and gaining invaluable wisdom in the process, giving each man a renewed sense of passion for all of life’s possibilities.

The film also stars Nicole Kidman, Julianna Margulies and Aja Naomi King. Jason Blumenthal, Todd Black, and Harvey Weinstein produced the project that filmed in Philadelphia back in March.

Written by Jon Hartmere, the English-language remake reinvents the French classic, The Intouchables, that took the world by storm and went on to gross over $400 million worldwide – making it the second highest grossing non-English language film of all time. In 2012, Omar Sy originated the role and won the Cesar Award for Best Actor. It’s the French equivalent of the Oscars. Cranston will playing the part originated in the French film by Francois Cluzet.
