Futuristic Cloning Drama Womb to Star Eva Green

The lovely, radiant Eva Green (aka the Bond girl from Casino Royale) is set to star in the futuristic drama Womb, which centers around a widow (played by Green) who decides to clone her late husband. Hungarian filmmaker Benedek Fliegauf is prepped to direct his own script for what will be his first English-language film. Co-starring along with Green will be Matt Smith of BBC's "Dr. Who." While the title makes this sound like it could be a horror film, it's definitely not. "Womb is one of the most touching and impressive love stories we have read in recent times," said Michael Weber, managing director of the Match Factory.
Although this is Fliegauf's first foray into English-language cinema, he has a number of credits to his name in Hungary, including his award winning experimental film Milky Way. Womb should be an interesting follow-up to that film, being that it is in a different language and is, at its core, a love story - albeit a futuristic one. Little else is known about this project, but my interest has certainly been peeked. Throw "futuristic" and "cloning" and "love story" into the synopsis, and you've got me hooked. Well, in addition to the Eva Green, who really hasn't had a real lead role just yet. We'll keep you updated on this film!

I think she is hands down one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood today.

Why on earth would the title Womb make it sound like a horror film? A little apprehensive about the female reproductive system, dude? Cloning in the hands of a woman (and her body) instead of male scientists?! The horror! The horror!

I agree, the name "Womb" sure does sound like a horror film...like some demon baby trying to kill his mother from the inside a la revamped Rosemary's Baby or something.

maybe a great movie if the art direction is superb!

yah I agree with Alex, it does sound like some horror/monster movie. Or maybe a zombie movie... A baby zombie? OK, that's just weird. But anyway, a futuristic drama sounds very interesting and refreshing. You don't see many of those.

Way to try and derail the comments into something sexist Ladyparts.

Throw "futuristic", "cloning" and "love story" together and I think either Gattaca or Code 46.
