'Rust And Bone' Star Matthias Schoenaerts Joining Michelle Williams In WWII Drama 'Suite Francaise'
The actor is in final negotiations to join Michelle Williams and Kristin Scott Thomas in the WWII drama "Suite Francaise." An adaptation of Irene Nemirovsky's novel, the story charts the love affair between a young French woman (Williams) and the German officer assigned to watch her in Nazi-occupied France. It looks like Schoenaerts will play the soldier, with Thomas slotted in as Williams' mother. Saul Dibb of "The Duchess" fame is directing, and everything is coming together to shoot in London next spring.
Fuck yeah, glad he's getting noticed in Hollywood! Belgians represent!
