Eva Green Joins Polanski’s “True Story”

Eva Green and Emmanuelle Seigner are set to star in Roman Polanski’s French-language psychological thriller “Based on a True Story” at Lionsgate.

Olivier Assayas (“Clouds of Sils Maria,” “Personal Shopper”) is co-writing the film with Polanski based on Delphine de Vigan’s critically acclaimed 2015 novel of the same name.

This will be Polanski’s first film since his 2013 drama “Venus in Fur” and follows a writer (Emmanuelle Seigner) whose life and mind are endangered by an obsessive woman (Eva Green).

Wassim Beji will produce and shooting will start in November in Paris.
