Personal Services: Naomi Watts, Will Sharpe & Jamie Campbell Bower Among Players in “Emmanuelle”

Earlier this morning Audrey Diwan confirmed the recent news that Naomi Watts has a role in her highly anticipated Emmanuelle, but the French filmmaker also revealed the rest of the line-up and gave us a first look with a splendid Noemie Merlant in a cozy, most-likely duvet something. Will Sharpe, Jamie Campbell Bower, Chacha Huang and Anthony Wong complete the cast. Luàna Bajrami and Anamaria Vartolomei are also part of the cast.

Emmanuelle Audrey Diwan

Based on Emmanuelle Arsan’s novel and based on a script co-developed by Diwan and Rebecca Zlotowski, this follows a young woman’s sexual journey from the arms of her husband to intimate encounters with the wives of his business associates, to further explorations wherein the philosophical and aesthetic facets of eroticism are expounded—and enacted—to the fullest degree. The screenplay might deviate from this. Production took place in France and recently they closed the books on Hong Kong so this will likely not be ready until Venice – but we’d love for this to shore up in Cannes. Producers on the project include Chantelouve’s Marion Delord and Reginald de Guillebon, Rectangle Productions and Goodfellas.
