Sigourney Weaver has joined the cast of Italian filmmaker Luca Guadagnino's "Body Art" at Alfama Films.
Based on the 2001 novella "The Body Artist" by Don DeLillo ("Cosmopolis"), the story follows a woman (Isabelle Huppert) who, grieving after her husband's suicide, discovers that a stranger is living in her upstairs room - a man who may or may not be real.
Weaver joins a cast that also includes Denis Lavant and David Cronenberg. Filming begins in Portugal in the summer.
