Ezra Miller joins ‘Bovary’ cast

Thesp to play Wasikowska's love interest in Occupant pic

“We Need to Talk About Kevin” star Ezra Miller is set to play Mia Wasikowska’s love interest in Occupant Entertainment’s “Madame Bovary,” for which Radiant Films Intl. has come on to handle international rights.

Sophie Barthes (“Cold Souls”) is directing from a script by Rose Barreneche, adapted from Gustave Flaubert’s classic novel.

Period drama, which co-stars Paul Giamatti, is being produced by Occupant’s Joe Neurauter and Felipe Marino.

Production will start this fall in Europe, and WME will handle domestic rights.

Miller will soon be seen alongside Emma Watson in Lionsgate/Summit’s “The Perks of Being a Wallflower.”

“Madame Bovary is one of the most passionate, tragic and intriguing stories we have come to love,” said Radiant Films prexy-CEO Mimi Steinbauer, who negotiated the rights deal with Neurauter and Marino. “The producers have assembled an enviable team of actors and filmmakers.”
