Jean Dujardin, who occupies the main role of the film "J'accuse" by Roman Polanski, canceled its news on TF1's 20-hour news, reports Le Parisien. The actor was to defend the feature film coming out this Wednesday in France. This last-minute change follows the new rape charge against the filmmaker, sought in the United States since 1977 for similar facts.
Polanski is accused by the French Valentine Monnier of having beaten her and raped her in a chalet in Gstaad (Switzerland) in 1975, when she was 18 years old. It is by learning the release of the film "J'accuse", which relates to a miscarriage of justice, the Dreyfus affair, which decided it to come out of silence nearly 45 years after the events.
