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.
