Gerard Depardieu, the stolid French star, is reportedly eager to take on the character of mysterious international economist Dominique Strauss-Khan, who found himself mired in a sex scandal with New York hotel maid Nafissatou Diallo. The twisting and evolving story surrounding the chief of the International Monetary Fund sent the one-time politicsl player back to France and scuttled his run at the French presidency.

Depardieu is said to be eager to play the role opposite actress Isabelle Adjani in a project to be directed by American indie Abel Ferrara. Deadline confirms that Ferrara and his collaborator Christ Zois are developing a script; they hope to use the Strauss-Khan affair as a way to address the theme of "addiction and politicians."

Depardieu did not comment when asked by France's Le Journal Du Dimanche yesterday, but did say: "In general, I'm very good at playing characters that I don't like or those that I don't resemble."
