Gainsbourg Amalric Woman In The Fifth

Carrying on the Gallic theme of the Cannes Film Festival, we now have news from two major French talents in the form of Charlotte Gainsbourg and Mathieu Amalric who have both lined up their next projects. We also have the first trailer for Pawel Pawlikowski's Paris-set "The Woman In The Fifth," starring Ethan Hawke and Kristin Scott-Thomas.

Gainsbourg will star in comic book artist-turned-filmmaker Riad Sattouf's satirical comedy "Jacky au royaume des filles," roughly translated as "Jacky In Woman's Kingdom." Sattouf latest film is the Cesar-winning "French Kissers," while Gainsbourg is fresh off a starring role opposite former Libertines/Babyshambles frontman Pete Doherty in "Confession of A Child Of The Century," which just screened on the Croisette. 'Jacky' will tackle the story of a young man who falls in love with an attractive colonel (Gainsbourg) and dreams of marrying her, even though she's completely out of his league. The film reportedly addresses contemporary social issues. Noemie Lvovsky and Didier Bourdon also co-star with lensing to kick off this September. [Variety]

Amalric, on the other hand, is set to return behind the camera after his 2010 burlesque comedy "On Tour." Teaming with regular producers Yael Fogiel and Laetitia Gonzalez, from Les Films du Poisson, the actor-director will helm an adaptation of Stendhal's "The Red And The Black," which follows an ambitious young teacher whose passionate liaison with a wealthy married woman leads to his downfall. Yikes! Amalric is writing at the moment with an eye out for an international co-production. [Variety]

Lastly, we have a new trailer for Pawlikowski's latest film, "The Woman In The Fifth," which teams Hawke and Scott-Thomas. The thriller follows the story of a writer who flees to Paris after a scandal costs him his job, and becomes involved with a widow -- a relationship that may have significant repercussions. The film hits theaters June 15th, and you can check out the trailer below or over at Apple in HD.
