“I think about it a lot, it’s 20 pages, half a comic,” Anne Goscinny told German weekly Der Spiegel in a weekend interview.
Typed by René Goscinny, the screenplay entitled “Astérix au cirque” was found in the family archives, kept by Anne.
But she said finishing the story without her father would be a “very complicated” task.
“We should bring a lot of people around the table, immerse ourselves in history and find the voice (of René),” she said, adding, “it’s like there is a hole in a painting by Goya “.
“One day, we will try, it would be an extraordinary adventure,” adds Anne.
Asterix – defender of the last Gallic village to resist the Roman Empire – was imagined in 1959 by René Goscinny, who died in 1977, and Albert Uderzo, who died last year.
The comics have sold hundreds of millions of copies worldwide.
Before the Asterix series, there was no comic book story that had a screenwriter.
