Serge Gainsbourge (via heroique): Sfar, 2009

From Variety:
Universal’s first local-language French pic will be based on the life of Gaul’s iconic singer-songwriter Serge Gainsbourg, who died in 1991.

“Serge Gainsbourg (vie heroique)” will mark graphic novelist Joann Sfar’s debut as a helmer.

Eric Elmosnino has been tapped to play the chanteur who was as famous for his glamorous lovers, including Brigitte Bardot and Jane Birkin, as he was for penning such hits as “Je t’aime ... moi non plus.”

French model Laetitia Casta will play Bardot, with Mylene Jampanoi set to play Gainsbourg’s last paramour, Bambou, and Anna Mouglalis tapped to play French singer Juliette Greco, who collaborated with Gainsbourg for many years.

Pic will trace Gainsbourg from his youth growing up in 1940s Nazi-occupied Paris, when he was called Lucien Ginsberg, through to his transformation into the hard-living showman. He died in 1991 at age 62.
Sounds interesting - he led quite the life of wine, women, and song. Casta as Bardot should be heavenly eye candy.
