Can you believe it's been 21 years since Caméra Café first aired?! (21 years, 2 months, 6 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Caméra Café end?
When Caméra Café came to an end after 3 years in December 2003, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Hervé Dumont (Bruno Solo) and Jean-Claude Convenant (Yvan Le Bolloc'h). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Caméra Café reunion disappoint people?
Caméra Café aired from 2001-2003 and is considered one of the most influential TV shows ever on pop culture. Although no original episodes have been shot since, it has remained a regular feature on many station's schedules. But Le Bolloc'h said he's not sure if Caméra Café would work today. “I don't want to see old Jean-Claude Convenant,” he told a journalist (Le Bolloc'h turned 60 in December). “Everyone’s going to have different vision of what the character is like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people,” he added.
Still hoping for a Caméra Café movie?
In a recent interview, Yvan Le Bolloc'h said he can't imagine a Caméra Café reunion hitting the big screen. “I'd rather people go, ‘Oh, please! Please!’ than ‘I can't believe you did that. It was horrible.’”
Co-star Shirley Bousquet (who played Nancy Langeais) has also previously explained, “It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good,”. “It was so terrific ... If we did a Caméra Café movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Caméra Café film, Tom Novembre stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a Caméra Café reboot?
Recasting Caméra Café for a modern reboot. Hollywood is known for remaking remakes of films or tv series and the studios might think it would be great to bring the story back with a new set of characters.
Be it in the form of a Caméra Café reunion, a Caméra Café movie, or a Caméra Café reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
