Biopic Of “Emmanuelle” Star Kristel Planned

PVPictures and Dutch Features are teaming for the biopic “Sylvia Kristel: Object of Desire” which will aim for a 2015 release.

Kristel, who died at age 60 last year, was the iconic star of the legendary erotic drama film series “Emmanuelle”.

Her role came to symbolise the sexual revolution of the 1970s. However, she never fully coped with the fame that came with the role, and she found herself battling addiction and typecasting.

She also shared stormy relationships with British actor Ian McShane and Belgian top author Hugo Claus. Sylvia’s son Arthur Kristel will serve as a consultant.

Paul Voorthuysen and Pim van Collem will produce.
