We’re already pretty fired up about Luca Guadagnino‘s latest feature Body Art. It’s based on a novel by Don DeLillo, which words were transferred to the big screen in two of 2012s fascinating limousine movies – Cosmopolis and Holy Motors.
We already learned that director of Cosmopolis, David Cronenberg will this time step out in front of the camera and join Isabelle Huppert and Denis Lavant, who wowed audiences with his excellent performance in Leos Carax‘s Holy Motors.
Now comes word that Sigourney Weaver has joined the cast of Italian filmmaker’s upcoming flick.
Her role isn’t clear, but we know the story follows performance artist Lauren Hartke (Huppert), struggling after her husband’s suicide, who discovers a strange man in her house. A man who may or may not be real, apparently changes his appearance each time they meet, which makes the role perfect for Lavant. Cronenberg may play Huppert’s husband and Weaver could play one of Lauren’s friends who try and coax her out of the house.
Filming begins in Portugal this summer.
It was confirmed that Weaver, known for her role of Ellen Ripley in the four Alien films, will be returning to Avatar 2, Avatar 3, maybe Avatar 4.
