Michelle Williams Will Topline “Suite Francaise”

Michelle Williams is in talks to star in the period drama “Suite Francaise” from filmmaker Saul Dibb (“The Duchess”) says Variety.

Williams would play Lucille Angellier, a spirited young woman in occupied France. With a husband she never really loved off to war, she’s left under the supervision of her domineering mother-in-law.

Her only escape is playing the piano. She soon becomes attracted to the young German officer assigned to their home, an officer who was a former composer.

David Parfitt and Mark Cooper are producing with shooting aiming to begin next Spring in London.
