David Cronenberg and "Cosmopolis" novel-writer Don DeLillo are pairing up with producer Paolo Branco for another film, "Body Art." The film is based on DeLillo's novel "The Body Artist" (synopsis below). "I Am Love"'s Luca Guadagnino adapted the script and will direct. Cronenberg will star with Isabelle Huppert and "Holy Motors" sensation Denis Lavant. Branco's French Alfama Films (who produced Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis") is producing and holds French rights; they'll begin shopping the foreign rights at the European Film Market.

From Barnes & Noble's synopsis: In The Body Artist, DeLillo tells the hallucinatory tale of performance artist Lauren Hartke in the days following the suicide of her husband, filmmaker Rey Robles. Finishing out their lease of a rented house on the coast, living in a self-imposed exile, Lauren discovers a mysterious man in the bedroom upstairs who is able to repeat -- verbatim -- entire conversations she had with her husband before his death but does not seem to know his own name or where he came from.

    Eccentric ambience very suitable for Isabelle Huppert. Reminded La Ville Amalia.
