Charlotte Gainsbourg in Talks to Reteam with Director Lars von Trier in THE NYMPHOMANIAC

     December 12, 2011

Exonerated of the charges concerning comments he made about Nazis at the Cannes Film Festival this past May, director Lars von Trier is moving forward with his next feature film. Variety reports that actress Charlotte Gainsbourg, who starred in von Trier’s last two films Antichrist and Melancholia, is in talks to reteam with the director for The Nymphomaniac. The film is described as “an explicit exploration of a woman’s erotic life,” and production is scheduled to get underway either next summer or fall. The pic will apparently be divided into eight chapters and, given the explicit subject material, released in two versions: a “softcore” cut for mainstream distribution and a “hardcore” one (I don’t even wanna know what von Trier has planned for the hardcore cut).

No other details about the project are known, but von Trier has previously stated that the film will cover the lead character’s erotic life from zero to the age of 50. Von Trier also apparently wants Stellan Skarsgard, who starred in Melancholia, to appear in the film as well. Gainsbourg won the Best Actress award at Cannes for her work in Antichrist.
