The film stars Charlotte Gainsbourg as a middle-aged nymphomaniac who is taken in by a bachelor (Stellan Skarsgard) and tells him of her sexual escapades throughout life. Shia LaBeouf will also star. It is unclear what roles the two newcomers will have. “Nymphomaniac” will take a page from Von Trier’s highly controversial “Antichrist” and will feature un-simulated sex scenes. Also joining the film are Nicolas Bro, Jesper Christensen, Jens Albinus, Shanti Roney and Severin von Hoensbroech.
Peter Aalbaek Jensen will produce with Bert Hamelinck, Marianne Slot, Bettina Brokemper, Louise Vesth.
