Shia LaBeouf will welcome Jamie Bell and Connie Nielsen to Lars Van Trier's The Nymphomaniac
Production for Lars Van Trier’s upcoming erotic drama THE NYMPHOMANIAC starts next week and a few more cast members have been added on before shooting starts. Jamie Bell (BILLY ELLIOT, MAN ON A LEDGE) and Connie Nielsen (ONE HOUR PHOTO and Starz BOSS) will be joining Shia LaBeouf in the explicit film that will definitely have hardcore sex scenes and will be releasing a softcore version as well.
THE NYMPHOMANIAC follows a 50 year-old woman named Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg) who is a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac. When she is found beaten up in an alley by Seligman (Stellan Skarsgard) he brings her back to his home and tends to her wounds while listening to her story (which is broken down into eight chapters) of her life that includes multiple sexual partners and various other incidents. There’s no release date for NYMPHOMANIAC yet, but producer Peter Aalbæk Jensen has said he is trying to get the film into the 2013 Cannes Film Festival with hopefully a release date later next year.
