Audrey Tautou tackles ‘Therese D.’ pic

Thesp stars in Claude Miller adaptation

After playing Coco Chanel in Anne Fontaine’s biopic, Audrey Tautou will star in Claude Miller’s next film, “Therese D.,” an adaptation of Francois Mauriac’s novel.

The 1920-set drama follows Therese Desqueyroux, a free-spirited but unhappily married woman who struggles to free herself from social pressures and the boredom of suburban life.

TF1 Intl. has picked up international sales and will launch pre-sales at Cannes’ film market.

The $12.7 million costumer is produced by Yves Marmion’s outfit UGC-YM. Lensing will start in 2011. UGC will handle the French theatrical release.

Tautou’s previous film, “Coco Before Chanel,” was last year’s top French-language export, taking more than $36.5 million at the international B.O. outside the U.S.

TF1 Intl. has also taken foreign sales rights to Sarah Polley’s second feature, “Take This Waltz,” a dramedy starring Michelle Williams and Seth Rogen. Lensing is set to kick off in July in Toronto. Pic is co-produced by Polley and Susan Cavan’s Accent Entertainment, in association with Telefilm Canada. Mongrel Media will handle the Canadian distribution.

Polley’s feature helming debut, “Away From Her,” earned two Oscar noms.

At Cannes, the French sales company will also hold market preems for Kristin Scott Thomas starrer “Love Crime,” a sexy thriller set in the corporate world; Wall Street-set “Trader Games,” starring French thesp Gilles Lellouche; Yann Gozlan’s “Caged”; and Jacques Malaterre’s “Ao, the Last Neanderthal.”
