Not only teenagers franchise movies tend to partition in half. Lars von Trier joins this trend and, according to his producer Peter Jensen Olbek will share a new picture into two parts. The main role in "Nympho" has gotten Charlotte Gainsbourg.
For the third time the actress is working with one of the most controversial directors. Gainsbourg first collaboration with von Trier, the drama "Antichrist," Charlotte brought the highest prize at the Cannes Film Festival - "Palme d'Or" for Best Actress. Then, Gainsbourg starred in "Melancholy" in supporting roles, as in "nymphomaniac," she will once again be as the first violin.
In a conversation with the publication Screen Daily producer refused to reveal the secrets of casting, but said: "We have gathered very well-known actors in this film, which proves that they appreciate the work of Lars, despite his strange words at Cannes."
Filming will begin in August this year and will be held in Germany, near Cologne. "We are doing two films - said Jensen. - A rather ambitious venture. Personally, I hope that the movie will be ready for the Cannes Film Festival 2013th. We shoot two films simultaneously and immediately installed to complete both parts simultaneously. " And here again the question arises: Why, Mr. Producer talks about Cannes, considering what a scandal broke out in connection with the careless words of Lars? Despite the apology, and he was declared persona non grata, and then sworn never to give interviews.
Peter Jensen Olbek didnâ€™t give the answer to this question, but notes that the film company Zentropa, and it belongs to von Trier, is extremely proud of the fact that the film "The Hunt" by Thomas Vinterberg entered in the competition program at the Cannes Film Festival this year. "This proves relationship between Zentropa and the great festival" - says producer.
"Nympho" keeps track of erotic woman's life from birth to 50 years. The first part will be in childhood and adolescence, whereas the second part will focus on the adult stage. As to the manner in which the film is, then, according to Jensen, it will be a mixed style: "Something will remove in the style of "Dogma", hand-held camera, something to take off nicely, with the help of a crane and a good camera."
As mentioned earlier, von Trier will give two versions of the film - hard and relaxed, in which all the "dangerous" parts of the bodies of actors will be blurred.
Interestingly, Lars von Trier still keeps in touch with Martin Scorsese, discussing their long-conceived project, based on "Taxi Driver." Peter did not disclose details, but confirmed that directors continue to communicate.
