The film, about a black working class family who leave their home to tackle snobbery on the ski slopes, was a big hit in France and became the 10th highest grossing film in the country of 2009.

And now Rock has bought the rights to the picture, with plans to write a new English-language screenplay and produce the remake, according to Variety.com.

It will be the second French remake for Rock, who previously directed and starred in 2007's I Think I Love My Wife with Kerry Washington, based on 1972 French film, Chloe in the Afternoon, by late moviemaker Eric Rohmer.
