Dafoe & Gainsbourg Join Antichrist
Finally, some casting has taken place for Lars Von Trier’s long-gestating Anitchrist, and it’s good enough to make it more than worth the wait. Variety reports that Willem Dafoe (pictured) and Charlotte Gainsbourg (I’m Not There) have signed on for the film.
The duo will play a couple who retreat to an isolated cabin after the death of their child, hoping to take some time for themselves and get their heads back to a normal place. Unfortunately things don’t go so well for them, as something ancient and evil has other plans.
The trade describes Antichrist as a psychological thriller that evolves into a horror film. Not sure exactly what that means, but I can’t wait to find out! The Antichrist shoot begins this month in Germany; keep it here for more updates as we get them!
