French media threaten to sue far-right Zemmour for using images

23

Celebrities and film com-panies are among those furious at the use of their images by far-right pundit Eric Zemmour in the short film that announced his run for the presidency.

Zemmour, a 63-year-old writer and TV pundit who declared his candidacy on Tues-day via a YouTube video, is the most stridently anti-Islam and anti-migrant of the challengers seeking to unseat President Em-manuel Macron in April 2022.

Director Luc Besson (“The Fifth Element”) was among those reacting angrily af-ter a clip from his 1999 film “Joan of Arc” starring Milla Jo-vovich appeared in Zemmour’s 10-minute video. Besson told AFP that the images were used “in a fraudulent manner” and that he “shares none of Eric Zemmour’s ideas.”
