Jamie Bell is among the new actors who have jumped on board to round out the cast of Lars Von Trier’s “Melancholia” follow-up, “Nymphomaniac”, according to Screen Daily. Bell, along with Connie Nielsen, Mia Goth, Jens Albinus, Severin von Hoensbroech, Peter Gilberg Cotton, Nicolas Bro, Tabea Tarbiat, Janine Romanowski, Jesper Christensen, Tania Carlin, Felicity Gilbert and Shanti Roney join previously cast stars Shia LaBeouf, Charlotte Gainsburg and Stellan Skarsgard.
Gainsburg plays Joe, a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac who recounts her erotic adventures from birth to age 50 to a charming bachelor, played by Skarsgard. Stacey Martin plays the younger version of Joe in the flashbacks. The filmmmakers call it “a monumental film about the female erotic desire, with claims and counter-claims, conflicting angles, and moral or perhaps precisely immoral observations.” Shooting on the 11-week production begins tomorrow in Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany and for a shorter period in Flanders, Belgium.
Bell recently wrapped up shooting futuristic actioner “Snowpiercer” with Chris Evans and Octavia Spencer as well as British thriller “Filth” with James McAvoy and Imogen Poots. The “Adventures of Tin Tin” star is also gearing up to shoot indie rom com “Fighting Jacob” opposite Kate Mara.
