Will Jean Dujardin return in the costume of Hubert Bonisseur de la Bath?
In October 2019, while OSS 117 3: Red Alert in Black Africa was in full production, its scriptwriter Jean-François Halin explained that he had a starting idea for a fourth opus: “I need to think about what I want to do now. Why not a fourth OSS and take advantage of the fact that attention is diverted to the third to prepare it quietly. Why not ? I already have an idea.“

Almost two years later, now that this third film has finally been released in theaters, after several postponements due to the Covid-19 epidemic, is this sequel still relevant? Without spoiler, the end of the film is open enough to imagine the return of Hubert Bonisseur de la Bath, still played by Jean Dujardin, and why not of Agent 1001, played by Pierre Niney. However, its director Nicolas Bedos assures Allocine that he didn’t think of this sequel for a fourth episode: “But no, there was absolutely no sequel in the pipes at that time. Me, it was a desire that I had, to open towards the future. But for free. It turns out that as a as a spectator – and I spend my life thinking about what I would like as a spectator – I like to be made a promise of something. Even if it is dishonest (laughs) “

So far, nothing official has been announced. Bedos and Niney meet on the new production of the first, entitled Masquerade, and Jean Dujardin radically changes register for November, a drama retracing the attacks of November 13, 2013 in France directed by Cédric Jimenez (North Bac), who had already directed him in French.
