Gus Van Sant has signed on as executive producer of Laurence Anyways.

He will lend his weight to the 2013 US release of Xavier Dolan's third movie, reports Deadline.

The film concerns a woman's struggle to cope after her fiancé reveals that he wants to transition into a woman.

Suzanne Clement received a best actress nod after its debut at the Un Certain Regard sidebar at the Cannes Film Festival for her starring role.

It was also named 'Best Canadian Feature Film' at the Toronto Film Festival.

Van Sant's next film will be Promised Land, the Matt Damon-starring drama that was originally intended as the actor's directorial debut.
