UPDATE: Much thanks to commenter tornepl we now have a more quality look at the pics posted below, plus a bonus behind the scenes snap of what appears to be Bier, Brosnan and crew traipsing through the woods. Still no word on an official synopsis, but these stills are looking very nice.

UPDATE: Much thanks to commenter tornepl we now have a more quality look at the pics posted below, plus a bonus behind the scenes snap of what appears to be Bier, Brosnan and crew traipsing through the woods. Still no word on an official synopsis, but these stills are looking very nice.

While Susanne Bier is best known for her tough dramas like “Open Hearts,” “After The Wedding,” “Brothers” and most recently, the Oscar winning “In A Better World,” the director is using her Academy Award to go and do something completely different. Make a romantic comedy.

First announced earlier in the year under the title "All You Need Is Love" with Pierce Brosnan set to star, production company Zentropa have revealed some (admittedly microscopic) first look photos, a new title for the film as well as the cast. First up, the movie is now being titled "The Bald Hairdresser" (uh, not so hot) and in addition to Brosnan, the cast is rounded out by Sebastian Jessen, Molly Egelind, Paprika Steen, Kim Bodnia, Line Kruse and Trine Dyrholm (who also starred in "In A Better World").

Details on the actual story are being kept close to the chest, but filming on the Amalfi coast in Italy, and centered around a Danish family, Brosnan described it earlier in the year as a “delightful love story….which has punch and deals with loss and a great love.” We also chatted with Bier back in March, and while she was reluctant to say too much about it, she did reveal the movie would be "bilingual, partly Danish and partly English."

Zentropa is readying the film for an August 2012 release (likely in Europe), so expect it to hit our shores sometime after that. And this can move way up the list of potential Cannes 2012 films. We'd imagine they will want to premiere the film there -- surprisingly, Bier has never unspooled a film in the main selection -- and they might be eager for a Danish helmer who isn't Lars Von Trier for a change. And yeah, we'll update the photos once some higher res versions come in.
