Gerard Depardieu is to play disgraced French financier Dominic Strauss-kahn in a new movie.
Director Abel Ferrara has confirmed the casting news to newspaper Le Monde, adding that Isabelle Adjani will portray the International Monetary Fund boss' wife Anne Sinclair.
Strauss-Kahn was charged with sexually assaulting a maid at the Sofitel New York Hotel last year (11).
Following an investigation, the charges were dropped, but the economist quit as Imf leader after news of the scandal broke.
