Back then, Depardieu noted that he would like to play Dumas himself.

“I’ve already started looking for famous Hollywood and European actors to make this idea of mine come true,” Depardieu said at the time.

“I already started searching for documents and historical materials about Dumas’ visit in Nagorno Karabakh (autonomous Azerbaijani republic) upon invitation from a well-known Azerbaijani poet Natavan (daughter of Karabakh Khan).”

Some sources claim the film will be shot as a documentary, with Depardieu playing Dumas himself.
