Rufus Sewell ("Dark City," "A Knight's Tale") is set to star in Irish filmmaker Virginia Gilbert's child abuse drama "Helen" at Chic Films, 1.85 Films and Grand Pictures.
Set in Paris, Sewell plays a divorced forty year-old man who lives with his twelve year-old daughter Helen. One day, the girl announces that her mother's new husband has molested her.
Filming takes place in Paris this summer. Gilbert's first feature, the romantic drama "A Long Way From Home," is currently in post-production.
