We love us some Uma Thurman, but this role is a doozy! The actress has signed up to appear in Lars von Trier’s newest risque film, Nymphomaniac.
Luckily she’s not pregnant anymore, otherwise the news would have been slightly traumatizing…
It hasn’t been announced which role Thurman will take on in this controversial, sexually charged movie; we’re actually not sure if we even want to know. The movie is about a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac named Joe (Gainsbourg) who is discovered very badly beaten in an alley by an old bachelor, Seligman (Stellan Skarsgard). He nurses her back to health as she recounts her life of erotic exploits.
Of course, the controversy of the film is that the sex scenes are promised to be genuine, no play-play. The world’s abuzz with LaBeouf’s debut into the world of classy pornography… Nymphomaniac will be released in two versions — soft and hard core — sometime in 2013. How awkward would it be to request a hard core movie ticket at your nearby cinema?
No word yet as to when Thurman will be joining the shooting. She’s probably still busy with her newborn baby. The movie is currently being filmed in Cologne, Germany.
There you have it. What do you think? Good film for Thurman to be a part of, or not so much?
