Charles Aznavour Biopic in the Works for 2024 Release

Charles Aznavour is getting a biopic.

The feature film, which is slated for release in 2024, is being spearheaded by French slam poet and lyricist, Fabien Marsaud, known professionally as Grand Corps Malade. The project has been in the works since 2020, in collaboration with Nicolas Aznavour, Charles Aznavour's son, and filmmaker Mehdi Idir.

Grand Corps Malade and Mehdi Idir previously collaborated on films such as PATIENTS and SCHOOL LIFE. SCHOOL LIFE was co-written and co-directed by the duo, while PATIENTS was written by Grand Corps Malade and co-directed by the duo. PATIENTS is a 2016 film that was nominated for 4 César Awards, the French equivalent to the Academy Awards.

Charles Aznavour and Grand Corps Malade recorded the song "Tu es donc j'apprends" together in 2010— a song which Charles Aznavour had asked  Grand Corps Malade to write for him.
