Jaoui clocks into ‘Hours’

Scott Thomas drops lead for 'Berenice'

PARIS — Agnes Jaoui, who wrote, helmed and acted in France’s Oscar-nommed “The Taste of Others,” is replacing Kristin Scott Thomas in helmer Laurent Bouhnik’s adaptation of the Stefan Zweig novel “24 Hours in the Life of a Woman.”

Scott Thomas had accepted the lead but dropped out earlier this year to star in Racine’s “Berenice” on stage at the Avignon Festival.

Jaoui will star opposite Michel Serrault (“La Cage aux Folles”) and Berenice Bejo (“A Knight’s Tale”). Pic begins shooting on the French Riviera Sept. 17.

Best known outside France thanks to “The Taste of Others,” Jaoui has almost a dozen film acting roles to her credit — several of which have been in movies she co-wrote, such as Alain Resnais’ “Same Old Song” (1997) and Cedric Klapisch’s “Family Resemblances.” She most recently appeared in Christophe Blanc’s “An Outgoing Woman” (2000). Playtime Prods. is producing “24 Hours.”
