Gainsbourg eyes von Trier’s ‘Nymphomaniac’

Les Films Du Losange takes French rights

Charlotte Gainsbourg is in talks to star in Lars von Trier’s “The Nymphomaniac,” an explicit exploration of a woman’s erotic life.

Les Films Du Losange, which has distributed all von Trier’s films since “Breaking the Waves” in 1996, will release “Nymphomaniac” in France.

Repped by TrustNordisk and produced by Zentropa, pic has also been pre-bought by Artificial Eye (U.K.), Wild Bunch (Benelux), Gutek Film (Poland), Central Partnership (Russia) and Aero Films (Czech Republic).

Pic is at script stage and lensing is slated for next summer or fall.

Penned by von Trier, “Nymphomaniac” will be divided into eight chapters and released in two versions — a softcore cut for mainstream distribution and a hardcore one.

Gainsbourg starred in von Trier’s last two films, “Melancholia” and “Antichrist,” which earned her the best actress honor at Cannes in May. “Melancholia” won best film at this month’s European Film Awards in Berlin.
