No stranger to difficult material (hello, "Antichrist") actress/singer Charlotte Gainsbourg will at least have her husband Yvan Attal by her side in yet another tough drama for the actress.

Gainsbourg, Attal and Nathalie Baye are set to star in "Une nuit," directed by actor and filmmaker Lucas Belvaux. Based on the novel "Est-ce ainsi que les femmes meurent?" (roughly translated as "Is This How Women Die?") by Didier Decon, the book recounts the infamous murder of Kitty Genovese in 1964. The woman was stabbed, raped and murdered in her own neighborhood while her cries for help, heard through the open windows of neighbors, went unheeded. The case has often been cited as an example of "bystander effect."

No word yet on what the roles will be but more word should emerge soon as filming is gearing up to start on January 21st. Gainsbourg will next be seen in Lars Von Trier's sci-fi psychological disaster film "Melancholia" -- which is likely to premiere at Cannes -- and more recently was seen in the Aussie drama "The Tree" which made festival rounds last year but hasn't picked up much heat, largely because it's sort of ridiculous.
