Montréal, June 15, 2016 – Patrick Huard and Colm Feore team up once again! Since May 22, directed by Alain DesRochers, shooting of the sequel to the police comedy BON COP BAD COP has been humming along nicely. In addition to the famous duo, an exceptional cast is on set, including actresses Lucie Laurier and Sarah-Jeanne Labrosse who reprise their original roles a decade later! They are joined by new characters, including those played by comic Mariana Mazza – in her first appearance on the big screen; actor Marc Beaupré – the unforgettable Marc Arcan in Série noire; and journalist Claude Poirier – as himself!
 
The biggest hit in the history of Canadian film, the original movie opened the door to a new generation of big budget comedies. Released exactly ten years ago, BON COP BAD COP registered 1,320,394 entries in Quebec, won numerous awards and earned a national box office of more than $12 million dollars – a record that remains unbroken to this day.
 
In the highly anticipated sequel, David Bouchard (Patrick Huard) and Martin Ward (Colm Feore) are once again forced to work together. This time, the Quebec investigator is under Ward’s command, since Ward is now a Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer. The unlikely duo has the mission of dismantling a stolen car ring, which in fact fronts for something much, much more sinister. Through their experiences, Bouchard and Ward discover that the enemies are not always whom you think. They also realize that as times goes by, some things change, while others stay exactly the same.
