The actress will play an eco-feminist presidential candidate in In placea political series by Jean-Pascal Zadi expected for 2023 on Netflix.

Don’t say Sandrine Rousseau, but Corinne Douanier. Short hair, green poster and eco-feminist slogans – “In green and against all” -: the character played by Marina Foïs in the upcoming series In placeincluding the magazine Vanity Fair obtained the first images, looks unmistakably like the ecologist deputy whose good words and outings have been making the headlines of the political press for several months. A tribute that the main interested party took with humor.

“You are not ready! (Me neither by the way)”tweeted Sandrine Rousseau on Friday, about the apparent similarity between the character and herself, the name of Douanier being able to be seen as a reference to Douanier Rousseau (1844-1916), leading figure of naive painting, under the Third Republic.

Interviewed by our colleagues from Vanity Fairproducer and humorist Jean-Pascal Zadi (simply black ), at the head of the series, denied having thought of Sandrine Rousseau when creating the character of Corinne Douanier. “I wouldn’t say she inspired me“, he specified, while adding “well liked” the deputy Europe-Ecologie-Les Verts.

Expected on Netflix sometime next year, In place will tell the story of a teacher (Jean-Pascal Zadi) candidate for the presidential election. In the race for the supreme position, he will have to compete in particular against Marina Foïs, in the skin of Corinne Douanier, the women’s candidate “alive, free and combative”. Benoît Poelvoorde, Éric Judor or even Fadily Camara will complete the cast.
