Jimmy Jean-Louis stars as the title character in what will be a 2-part TV-movie, and he’s joined by French actresses Aïssa Maïga (Paris, Je T’Aime, Bamako) as Toussaint’s wife, Suzanne, and Sonia Rolland (Moloch Tropical, Midnight In Paris) as Marie-Eugénie Sonthonax, wife of abolitionist L.F. Sonthonax.

Expected to air on the French network sometime in 2012, no specific date has been given yet, nor whether we can expect the film to travel.

Toussaint L’ouverture is directed by Philippe Niang.
