On the cinema side, it is his interpretation of Guy Georges in The SK1 Affair which made him especially known to the general public. In 2013, Adama Niane was 47 when he was spotted by Frédéric Tellier to play the killer from eastern Paris. “When I came home [sur le tournage, NDR], there was a rustle, the extras wanted to see who was going to play Guy Georges. They wanted to see the monster. I believe that, since that day, the ghosts of the assize court have never let us go.he confided before specifying: “Professionally, it must be said that it is a motivating, exciting role. For the individual, it is a bit more complicated. It’s true that I find it hard to tell myself that this is a promising role for me. So I try not to think about it. I just tell myself that you don’t come across many opportunities like this in a career.”.
In 2016, the comedian shared the cast of West Indian Gang . In 2019, Olivier Abbou entrusted him with the leading role in his film Fury an oppressive thriller available on Netflix.
