Uma Thurman has come aboard "The Nymphomaniac" in an unknown role, with the movie now shooting in Germany. As you know, the ambitious project -- which Von Trier is shooting in both hard and soft versions -- tracks the sex life of a woman (Charlotte Gainsbourg) who recounts her tale to a bachelor (Stellan Skarsgard) who finds her badly beaten in an alley one evening. Thurman rounds out a cast that also includes Connie Nielsen and Stacy Martin.
It's certainly an interesting move for Thurman who hasn't been much of a presence on the big screen in the last few years, with roles in smaller indie films like "Bel Ami" and "Ceremony" along with a stint on NBC's "Smash." She'll next be seen in "Playing For Keeps" with Gerard Butler, while "The Nymphomaniac" takes off its clothes next year. [THR]
