Questo articolo è disponibile in inglese.
On Monday begins the shoot for Ronald Krump, the feature debut from young director Cédric Bourgeois, starring Jean-Benoît Ugeux and Jean-Jacques Rausin in the leading roles.
Frank, a former porn star known under the name Ronald Krump, sees his daughter Sophie kidnapped, with a hefty ransom to pay. Helpless, he turns to his friend Bobby for help. The two friends embark on a crazy journey to save Sophie.
Cédric Bourgeois was noticed a few years ago with the short film You’re Lost Little Girl (2017), and with the documentary Dreamcatchers (2014), co-directed with Belgian filmmaker Xavier Seron (Death by Death [+leggi anche:

The universe in the pitch for Ronald Krump reminds that of Seron and Ugeux, who have often worked together, a dark and absurd universe not lacking in tenderness, and also shared with actor Jean-Jacques Rausin, another hero in the film, winner of the Magritte award for Best Actor a few years ago for Xavier Seron’s Death by Death. In short, it’s a family affair.
Also in the cast is the young actress Elise Havelange, discovered in the short film Les Dauphines, as well as the excellent Babetida Sadjo (the series Into the Night, And Breathe Normally [+leggi anche:

Filming, which is taking place in Brussels, will conclude on 2 April. A very short shoot then, for this film which received support for lightweight productions from the Centre du Cinéma de la Fédération Wallonie Bruxelles, and which is produced by Roue Libre Prod, already behind Lenny and Harpo Guit’s Mother Schmuckers [+leggi anche:
