Beart to star in ‘Vinyan’

Film to begin shooting in May

Emmanuelle Beart, in Berlin for Andre Techine’s competition selected “The Witnesses,” will star in the Film Four-backed English-lingo supernatural thriller “Vinyan,” by Belgian helmer Fabrice du Welz.

Beart will play a woman searching for her lost child in Thailand, with her partner to be played by an as yet unnamed Brit actor. Couple’s search takes them through the pirate-infested waters of the Thai/Burmese coast and the jungle. Vinyan is the Thai word for a lost spirit that torments the living.

Pic is slated to shoot in Thailand in May.

Script has been developed by producer Michael Gentile’s Paris-based The Film, producer of du Welz’s “Calvaire,” in association with Britain’s Film Four and producer Lizzie Francke.

Paris-based Back-Up Films is expecting to conclude finance plans for the project in Berlin.
