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.
