de France Joins Eastwood’s “Hereafter”

Cecile de France (“High Tension,” “Russian Dolls”) has signed to star opposite Matt Damon in Clint Eastwood’s supernatural drama “Hereafter” for Warner Bros. Pictures says Variety.

Peter Morgan (“The Queen,” “Frost/Nixon”) penned the script about three people who are touched by death in different ways.

De France will portray a French journalist who has a near-death experience. Eastwood, Kathleen Kennedy and Robert Lorenz are producing.

Shooting began last month and stretches across Paris, London, Hawaii and San Francisco. A December 2010 release is planned.
