The Occupant Entertainment-produced adaptation also stars Mia Wasikowska, Ezra Miller, Paul Giamatti, Rhys Ifans, and Henry Lloyd-Hughes and begins production this week in Normandy, France. Rose Barrenche and Barthes scripted from Gustave Flaubert’s classic novel about Emma (Wasikowska), who escapes her small-town life through marriage to a doctor and indulges in a string of adulterous affairs, with tragic consequences. Marshall-Green will play the Marquis, with Gourmet as Monsieur Roualt and Carmichael playing Henrietta. Marshall-Green is repped by CAA and 3 Arts Entertainment; Gourmet is repped by Artmedia; and Carmichael is repped by Curtis Brown Group and Untitled Entertainment.
