Bellucci gig gets ‘Grimm’

Pic will also star Damon, Ledger, Pryce

Monica Bellucci has signed to play the evil queen in Terry Gilliam’s “The Brothers Grimm,” now shooting in Prague.

A Dimension Films-MGM co-production, “Brothers Grimm” is the story of two traveling con artists who perform bogus exorcisms and pretend to protect people from enchanted creatures until they encounter a real magical curse in a haunted forest.

Bellucci will portray the forest’s ruler, a woman who has found eternal life but not eternal beauty. She turns to the forest in order to procure the young virgins whose blood she needs to stay lovely.

“The Brothers Grimm” stars Matt Damon, Heath Ledger and Jonathan Pryce. Written by Gilliam, Tony Grisoni and Ehren Kruger, production is expected to continue through mid-November. Daniel Bobker and Charles Roven produce.

Bellucci portrays Mary Magdalene in Mel Gibson’s upcoming “The Passion.” She will also be seen in “The Matrix Revolutions.” She also recently starred in “Agents Secrets” opposite Vincent Cassel for France’s TFM.
