Gainsbourg has previously worked with von Trier on Antichrist and last year's Melancholia.

She will play Joe, the woman who recounts her sexual history to an older bachelor played by Melancholia co-star Stellan Skarsgard.

Von Trier reportedly plans to shoot two versions of the film - one soft version for general release and one hardcore, graphic cut, which the director has stated will show penetration.

Filming is due to begin this summer in the German state of North-Rhein Westphalia, where Antichrist was shot.

Gainsbourg stated recently that she refused to pleasure a porn star while filming Antichrist.
