MONTREAL - Quebec is getting a French-language version of 'South Park,' swearing and all.
Karine Vanasse, most recently seen in `Polytechnique,' and Xavier Dolan, who gained acclaim at the Cannes International Film Festival for his movie `J'ai tue ma mere,' will be among those supplying the voices.
Dolan will voice Stan, Vanasse will play Wendy, and Alex Perron will bring Mr. Garrison and Big Gay Al to life.
The original version of `South Park,' the hugely popular and foul-mouthed cartoon satire, is now in its 13th season in English.
It chronicles the misadventures of a bunch of Colorado school kids and often unsparingly mocks major social issues and celebrities.
Quebec's French-language version will be broadcast on the TQS network starting next month.
