Gerard Depardieu - Gerard Depardieu & Isabelle Adjani To Play Strauss-kahn And Wife

Gerard Depardieu and Isabelle Adjani are to team up onscreen as disgraced former International Monetary Fund boss Dominique Strauss-kahn and his ex-wife Anne Sinclair.
The French businessman was forced to step down as the Imf's chief last year (11) after he was caught up in a hotel rape scandal. Charges against him were dropped, but the fall-out cost him his job and his marriage.
Adjani recently told French publication Journal de Dimanche the film, to be directed by Abel Ferrara, will be hard hitting, revealing, "It should be fascinating because we have a director who isn't French in charge and he's going to go where it hurts... With him, there's no risk of being politically correct."
And newswoman Sinclair is delighted with the casting.
She tells local paper Le Parisien she's a big fan of Adjani's 1988 movie Camille Claudel, in which the actress starred opposite Depardieu.
Sinclair tells the newspaper, "I like that woman a lot."
And Depardieu insists he won't be holding back anything as the disgraced businessman Strauss-Kahn - because he found him to be "arrogant" throughout the rape scandal.
Announcing the casting earlier this year (12), the actor said, "Because I don't like him I'm going to do it."
