A two-part movie entitled "The Nymphomaniac" that's aiming to hit the Cannes Film Festival in 2013...yep, that sounds about right for everyone's favorite (well, almost everyone) cinematic enfant terrible, Lars Von Trier. And now his brewing picture, which is set to star Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgard and Willem Dafoe, may get a blast from Von Trier's past.

A two-part movie entitled "The Nymphomaniac" that's aiming to hit the Cannes Film Festival in 2013...yep, that sounds about right for everyone's favorite (well, almost everyone) cinematic enfant terrible, Lars Von Trier. And now his brewing picture, which is set to star Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgard and Willem Dafoe, may get a blast from Von Trier's past.

According to AlloCine, in an interview with Nicole Kidman in the July/August issue of movie magazine Positif (print only), the actress reveals she would be working for a "few days" on "The Nymphomaniac." If that's the case, it would appear that her experience on the director's excellent "Dogville" was a good one (though she didn't return for the follow-up "Manderlay," instead replaced by Bryce Dallas Howard, while the third movie in the proposed trilogy, "Washington," never got made). That's all the info for now, and no word on what her role might be in the new movie.

And indeed, details thus far about "The Nymphomaniac" are under the radar except for this tantalizing official synopsis: NYMPHOMANIAC is the light and poetic story of a woman's erotic journey from birth to the age of 50 as told by the main character, the self-‐diagnosed nymphomaniac, Joe. On a cold winter's evening Seligman, an old bachelor, finds Joe semi‐unconscious and beaten up in an alleyway. After bringing her to his flat he sees to her wounds while trying to understand how things could have gone so wrong for her. He listens intently as she over the next 8 chapters recounts the lushly branched-‐out and multi faceted story of her life, rich in associations and interjecting incidents.

Lensing is set to get underway this summer, and in case you forgot, the movie will arrive in both hardcore and softcore variations, with porn actor doubles being used for the raunchy stuff. So yeah, just when we think Lars Von Trier is moving right, he turns left, so we're very curious to see how this one turns out.
