When the next Roman Polanski film, "Venus In Fur," was first announced in September, it was reported that shooting would take place in Paris in November. Well, the schedule got delayed a bit, but cameras are now rolling. However the production has seen the co-star get swapped out.

Mathieu Amalric has replaced the previously cast Louis Garrel in the film, and will feature opposite Emmanuelle Seigner who is still on board. Originating as a Broadway play, the playwright, David Ives, has collaborated with Polanski on the screenplay for the story which takes place in the theater world,and centers on the writer/director of a new play who is enduring the process of finding an actress for a role in his upcoming work. A new talent comes in at the last minute and is seemingly the opposite of everything he's looking for...of course, this is just the beginning.

Amalric and Seigner previously starred together to great acclaim in Julian Schnabel's "The Diving Bell And The Butterfly," so it's an extra reason to get excited for this effort. As for Amalric, signing on here adds to an already very busy 2013, as he's also shooting Wes Anderson's "The Grand Budapest Hotel." No word yet on when "Venus In Fur" might appear, but considering that it seems like a smaller, more contained story than even "Carnage," we wouldn't be surprised if it pops up on the fall festival circuit somewhere.
