Taxi Call for Tarkan
French movie star Samy Naceri, made famous in his role for the Taxi movies has been quoted as expressing his desire to star alongside Turkish music superstar Tarkan in the next installment of the action film franchise.
Preparing to come to Istanbul for a film location search next week, Naceri has revealed his wish to see Tarkan star in the upcoming film Taxi 4, which is currently in post-production and scheduled to be filmed in the largest city in Europe.
It is not clear whether an actual meeting has been set up. Tarkan recently flew back from Los Angeles to Istanbul to attend the funeral of music mogul Ahmet Ertegun, who died in New York five days ago.
Although unconfirmed, it is reputed that Naceri may share the lead with Sylvester Stallone for the fourth in the Taxi series. Tarkan was recently spotted at LA's Garden of Eden for Stallone's latest Rocky Balboa premiere release kick-off bash.
