LThe Unknowns are about to make their big comeback. In any case, this was confirmed by Pascal Légitimus on the RFM antenna this weekend, implying that the trio was meeting again to return to the fray. “Currently we are seeing each other, we are coagulating our energies for two, three projects that I can’t talk about yet…”
The comedian specifies anyway that a comedy is well prepared with “Philippe Godeau as producer”. “A director is writing for us,” he continues. They are two universes that are going to converge, that of the Unknowns and that of this director, whom I cannot name, because we have not yet signed at the bottom of a page… I think it should appear next year”.
The Unknowns hasn’t returned to the big screen since.

We are still here, except we are a little older, we have less energy, but in any case, we have been working for almost thirty years. At some point, we stopped because we had nothing more to say, so we fell fallow, as they say. And there it is, we have ideas, junk, we come back calm…”

Without forgetting a show project around revisited sketches, an idea that is close to the heart of Didier Bourdon, as he confided last January on the RTL antenna.
