Variety has confirmed that Naomi Watts has joined the cast of Audrey Diwan‘s highly-anticipated erotic drama, “Emmanuelle.”  The film is inspired by Emmanuelle Arsan’s novel and is based on a script co-developed by Diwan and Rebecca Zlotowski (“Other People’s Children”). The book centers on a woman and the series of erotic fantasies that she entertains. It was previously made into a 1974 film of the same name, directed by Just Jaeckin and starring Sylvia Kristel, which became a cult hit.

Watts revealed the news after posting a (now-deleted) Instagram Story with “Emmanuelle” co-star Noemie Merlant. Merlant plays the titular role in “Emmanuelle”, with the rest of the cast comprised of Will Sharpe (“The White Lotus”), Jamie Campbell Bower (“Stranger Things”), Chacha Huang (“Money Heist”) and Anthony Wong (“Infernal Affairs”).
