Cannes: Adrien Brody Crowned ‘Emperor’ for Corsan

Adrien Brody is set to play title role in Lee Taamahori’s “Emperor” from Belgian finance, production and sales company Corsan.

“Emperor” is written by Michael Thomas III (“The Devil’s Double”) and the script is adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher (“The Duchess”). Production begins in August in the Czech Republic and Belgium. Paradigm Talent Agency are supporting with casting.

Brody and Corsan have previously worked together on “Third Person,” directed by Paul Haggis and set for release this June from Sony Pictures Classics.
