Jamie Bell and Connie Nielsen have boarded Lars Von Trier‘s upcoming two-part feature, Nymphomaniac.  Per THR, “Charlotte Gainsbourg will star as Joe, a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac. Stellan Skarsgard will play Seligman, an old, charming bachelor who finds Joe beaten up in an alley. He takes her home to care for her and Joe recounts to him the story of her erotic life, from birth to the age of 50.”  The movie also stars Shia LaBeouf and Danish actors Nicolas Bro (Warhorse), Jesper Christensen (Quantum of Solice) and Jens Albinus (Idiots), Sweden’s Shanti Roney (Together) and German actor Severin von Hoensbroech (Ruhm).  Nicole Kidman and Willem Dafoe have been rumored for supporting roles.  THR currently doesn’t have any details on who Bell or Nielsen’s will be playing.

LaBeouf has said that all of the sex scenes will be for real, but the producers explain they “will be performed with the help of body doubles and visual effects.”  According to THR, Von Trier plans to release the films in both hard-core and soft-core versions with an eye towards a 2013 release.  The 11-week shoot in Gemany begins tomorrow.
