Production kicks off this week on Olivier Assayas' "Sils Maria," and joining his already starry leads—Juliette Binoche, Chloe Moretz and Kristen Stewart—is an equally impressive supporting cast. So let's get right into it.

Daniel Bruhl (the upcoming "Rush" and "The Fifth Estate"), veteran Bruno Ganz ("Downfall," "Wings Of Desire"), indie kid Brady Corbet ("Simon Killer") and U.K. thesp Tom Sturridge ("On The Road" reteam with KStew, ZOMG!) have all come on aboard the movie. The movie will tell the story an older actress (Binoche) who gets obsessed-over by a younger thesp (Moretz) taking on a role the older actress made famous. Bruhl takes the role of a theater director, with Sturridge to play Moretz's boyfriend. No word yet on the parts for Ganz and Corbet.

IFC—who have release the director's last three efforts stateside, "Summer Hours," "Carlos" and "Something In The Air"—has already snapped up the U.S. rights for the movie, which is one we're already marking down on our 2014 must see list. Production starts Thursday and carries through until October 4th, and while there's no release date yet, we'd put some pretty good odds on a Cannes Film Festival debut next spring.

    Per the producer Charles Gillibert Tom Sturridge has been replaced by Johnny Flynn and Bruno Ganz is not in the movie either. Sturridge is filming Far from the Madding Crowds in September in a starring role while this is only five days of shooting.

    Anyone who finds sexual harassing directors funny is an ignorant jerk. Kristen just finished filming a film and nothing happened on that set. I don't understand why the man who was over 40 years old isn't getting slammed for going after a 20 year old barely a woman. It's not funny. He was her boss. It's illegal. He's almost a statutory rapist considering her age at the time.

    Zomg, Sturridge is no longer in the film. He has the lead in another film starting in Sept. However, he was replaced by another Pattinson friend who is a singer and a pretty good actor.

    Question: What's with the "Zomg?" I'm wondering where you people received your journalism degrees (if you have them).

    @ LOL - oh, give it a rest about Stewart already! Number 1, the most incriminating of any pictures show AT MOST kisses and hugs - anything beyond that occurred only in your imagination. Number 2, if she hadn't been famous, the press would have been all over the DIRECTOR (you know, her OLDER, MARRIED BOSS) for sexual harassment. Number 3, it was a year ago - quit harassing this woman for actions a MULTITUDE of MEN in Hollywood have done, with little to NO repercussions.

    Is anybody else troubled by the casting of 28 year old Tom Sturridge as 16 year old Chloe Moretz's boyfriend? Is that in that in the script?

    I don't think Tom Sturridge is in the film anymore. He has a lead role in Far From the Maddening Crowd, and his role in this film is tiny-only about a week's worth of filming. I think there is probably have a timing conflict. I agree though that the age difference is creepy.

    You know LOL if you weren't so hateful and jealous of Kristen Stewart, you would be nothing at all. everyone else I agree holy with your comments. And you are all correct if she and Rob hadn't been so popular and so in love everyone would have jumped on Rupert Saunders as it is he got away scoot free. It is sort of creepy how older actors are matched up with young starlets. Kristen you are a great actress if anyone is giving you a bad time over there just ignor them and smile the way you do in LA. We love you and want you to be happy.
