Cast revealed for Paris Connections, the first film to be produced by retailer Tesco.

Nicole Steinwedell (pictured), Charles Dance and Trudie Styler are heading the cast of Jackie Collins’ adaptation Paris Connections, which started shooting in Paris on February 2.

The film, which has been adapted from Collins’ 1999 bestseller LA Connections, is the first project to come out of the co-production partnership between retailer Tesco and Amber Entertainment. British film-maker Harley Cokeliss is directing.

Nicole Steinwedell, who starred in Tom Ford’s A Single Man, will play glamorous journalist Madisan Castelli, who becomes embroiled in an investigation into the murder of a group of size zero models in Paris.

Anthony Delon, Caroline Chikezie, Hudson Leik and Fabien de Chavlon are also starring in the film, while producers are currently in negotiations with Anouk Aimee, who was nominated for an Academy Award for Un Homme et Une Femme, to play a special role in the film.

“I’m delighted with this fantastic cast that will bring my characters to life,” said Jackie Collins. “Nicole Steinwedell is my perfect Madison; smart and beautiful, Anthony Delon is full of charm and French charisma, Charles Dance as my powerful Russian will bring such a strength to the role.  A terrific actor with a great screen presence as is Trudie Styler who has class, style and acting chops.”
