Gerard Depardieu‘s latest business venture is private airlane. French film star has named his new airline Cyran R. Probably the name comes from the French actor literary great he played in the 1990 film “Cyrano de Bergerac”.
Belgian newspaper L’Echo reports that the aircraft will be based at the Lesquin airport, outside of Lille close to the actor’s home and could serve to carry passengers as well as commercial cargo. Depardieu has stepped away from acting in recent years, focusing on his ever-expanding business empire.
Tired of acting, as he told the French newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche on January 5, Depardieu opened a commercial wine cellar last November in Estaimpuis. He also owns already mentioned a bed and breakfast hotel in in the village of Néchin, and he plans to open a gourmet restaurant in the neighboring city of Tournai before the end of 2014.
