Ever since the Cannes Film festival (before he got banned from ever attending it again), Lars Von Trier has been talking about making an extremely sexually frank, rather hardcore movie. Back them he joked about having his Melancholia stars Kirsten Dunst and Charlotte Gainsbrough romping in the movie, but it’s now been revealed that it’ll actually be Gainsbourg who stars in Nymphomaniac.
Variety reports that she’s in talks to topline the movie. Not a vast amount is known about the film, other than it will chronicle a woman’s erotic life and will be split into eight chapters. Von Trier will also prepare two cute of the movie – a hardcore one and a softcore one.
Makign a film about female eroticism and calling it Nymphomaniac isn’t going to change the ideas of those who thing Von Trier is a mysogynist, but we’ll give him the benefit of the doubt for now. The director is currently writing the movie and hopes to shoot it next summer or autumn.
