Even before TrustNordisk has launched the official presales of Nymphomaniac, Central Partnership has acquired for Russia.
TrustNordisk will have a script available early next year for the film to shoot in summer 2012.
As previously reported, Stellan Skarsgaard is expected to join the cast. The film is about “the erotic life of a woman from the age of zero to the age of 50.” As usual, Peter Aalbaek Jensen will produce for Zentropa.
TrustNordisk is currently selling von Trier’s Cannes Competition title Melancholia, which won the Cannes Best Actress prize for Kirsten Dunst.
Melancholia is released in the UK on Sept 30, in Germany Oct 6, Spain Sept 9 and US and Canada on Nov 11.
