Mathieu Amalric (Quantum of Solace, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly) has joined the cast of Roman Polanski's Venus in Fur.

This French-language adaptation of David Ives' Broadway play follows an actress trying to convince a director that she is perfect for his new production. Mathieu Amalric's wife Emmanuelle Seigner and Louis Garrel also star.

Roman Polanski is directing from an adapted screenplay he co-wrote with playwright David Ives. We reported in September that Lionsgate/Summit International will represent the international rights, although a domestic distributor has not been found yet. Robert Benmussa and Alain Sarde are producing.

Shooting is currently under way in Paris. Mathieu Amalric most recently starred in David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis.

Venus in Fur was released in 2013 and stars Emmanuelle Seigner, Louis Garrel, Mathieu Amalric. The film is directed by Roman Polanski.

    @bawnian-dexeus Ya know, the plot actually sounds really good -- definitely shades of Sunset Blvd, as you mentioned. I just worry about Polanski. Carnage was, by far, the worst movie I've seen in quite some time.
