THR has word that Shia LaBeouf, who’ll next be seen starring in John Hillcoat’s prohibition drama ‘Lawless,’ has entered into talks to join Charlotte Gainsbourg and Stellan Skarsgård in Lars von Trier’s ambitious erotic drama ‘Nymphomaniac.’
Set to begin production in September, ‘Nymphomaniac’ is the wild and poetic story of a woman’s erotic journey from birth to the age of 50 as told by the main character, the self-diagnosed nymphomaniac, Joe (Gainsbourg).
On a cold winter’s evening the old, charming bachelor, Seligman (Skarsgård), finds Joe beaten up in an alleyway. He brings her home to his flat where he tends to her wounds while asking her about her life. He listens intently as Joe over the next 8 chapters recounts the lushly branched-out and multi faceted story of her life, rich in associations and interjecting incidents.”
Von Trier’s ‘Dogville’ star Nicole Kidman is rumoured to be taking a small role.
