>> Natalia Vodianova Cast in First Lead Acting Role Opposite Jonathan Rhys-Meyers
—Natalia Vodianova's turn as Medusa in this year's Clash of the Titans wasn't a fluke — she's been cast in the upcoming Belle du Seigneur, based on Albert Cohen's bestselling 1968 French novel of the same name, in which she plays a married Swiss woman who has a love affair with a Jewish diplomat (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers) on the brink of World War II. Filming is set to begin Oct. 25 starting in Geneva and then moving to Italy. The film's director is first-timer Glenio Bonder, who has done commercials for Calvin Klein (of which Vodianova is the former face) in the past, and the release date is currently on track for 2012.
