According to an exclusive report by Spanish film magazine Fotogramas, Rinko Kikuchi and Juliette Binoche have been cast as the female leads in Isabel Coixet’s Nobody Loves the Night. Additionally, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister from Game of Thrones) may play one of the male roles.
Set at the end of the 19th century, the film revolves around two women with very different personalities who are in love with the same man and rely on their own cunning and nerve to survive in the beautiful, yet unforgiving environment of the North Pole.
Miguel Barros (Blackthorn, Fateless) is handling the screenplay and Andrés Santana will produce.
Kikuchi previously starred in Coixet’s Map of the Sounds of Tokyo, which premiered at the 62nd Cannes Film Festival in 2009.
