From what we gather (both articles are in French), Van Damme is set to play Roman athlete Cornedurus. FrÃ©dÃ©ric Forestier looks to be the director of the third AstÃ©rix adventure. Gerard Depardieu is expected to return as ObÃ©lix, with Indian actress Aishwarya Rai on board as well. Alain Delon is playing Julius Ceasar. Christian Clavier is said not to be returning AstÃ©rix.
Filming will start in May, 2006 in Morocco and Tunisia for a release date in December, 2007.
