The news was first broken by Daily Mail and then later confirmed by Production Weekly. Ricci allegedly will tackle the role of Clotilde, the wife of a railway inspector who is often away for long periods of time. The filming itself is expected to begin in February and reportedly will take place in London and Budapest.

Robert Pattinson is slated to play the lead character Georges Duroy, who is described as a man who rises to the top by manipulating a series of powerful and wealthy mistresses. He will star opposite Uma Thurman who is slated to star as a woman who is extremely involved and connected in the goings-on of Parisian society before later becomes his wife.

Meanwhile, Kristin Scott Thomas will portray a socialite who falls for Duroy and becomes clingy in the process. Adapted from Guy de Maupassant's novel with the same name, "Bel Ami" will be helmed by Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod.
