Eva Green has signed to star in the futuristic drama “Womb,” Hungarian helmer Benedek Fliegauf’s first English-language film.

Produced by Roman Paul and Gerhard Meixner of Berlin-based Razor Film (“Waltz With Bashir”) and Andras Muhi of Inforg Studio Budapest, pic tells the story of a grieving widow, played by Green, who decides to clone her late husband. Matt Smith (who has been tapped to replace David Tennant in the BBC’s “Dr. Who”) co-stars.

Cedomir Kolar and Marc Baschet of Paris-based ASAP Films, ZDF/ Arte and Arte Cinema are co-producing the film.

Fliegauf, who won a Golden Leopard in Locarno in 2007 for his experimental pic “Milky Way,” will begin production on the film in March on the North Sea coast.

“‘Womb’ is one of the most touching and impressive love stories we have read in recent times,” said Michael Weber, managing director of the Match Factory, which is handling international sales on the pic.
