Charlotte Gainsbourg is set to star in Misunderstood.
The Melancholia actress would reunite with her Do Not Disturb co-star Asia Argento, who would direct, reported Italian website Radio Cinema.
The British star's role is being kept under wraps, with Gabriel Garko and Julia Salermo also appearing in the upcoming film.
Misunderstood will be Asia's third outing as director, following 2000's Scarlet Diva and The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things in 2004.
Charlotte, who has appeared in many French-language films, will next star in Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac, which would be their third film together.
The upcoming sexually explicit two-film project, which also stars Shia LaBeouf, Jamie Bell and Christian Slater, will premiere in Denmark in December.
The 42-year-old, the daughter of English actress Jane Birkin and French singer and songwriter Serge Gainsbourg, is also set to star in Wim Wenders' 3D drama Every Thing Will Be Fine with James Franco.
Italian filmmaker Asia - the daughter of actress Daria Nicolodi and Italian film director Dario Argento - will return to the front of the cameras to star in her father's film Dracula 3D.
