According to The Hollywood Reporter, Molly Shannon has signed on for court intrigue opposite Kirsten Dunst in Sofia Coppola's Marie-Antoinette.

Shannon will play a lady of the court, Anne Victoire, who also is Marie-Antoinette's aunt, with Dunst in the title role.

The film is to begin shooting next month in Paris.

Jason Schwartzman and Rip Torn already have signed on to join a mostly French cast. Coppola wrote the screenplay and is producing with Ross Katz via American Zeotrope.

Shannon, whose feature credits include Serendipity and Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas, most recently appeared in Kenneth Lonergan's True to You at the Tribeca Theater Festival.
