Nymphomanic producer Lars von Trier told The Hollywood Reporter: ‘Above the waist it will be the star and the below the waist it will be the doubles.’ The film will include graphic sex scenes between the members of the all-star cast, including Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgard, Shia LaBeouf and Uma Thurman.
For the truly hard-core elements of the film, von Trier used body doubles for the stars. He will use digital technology to combine the actors’ non-explicit displays with the pornographic performance of the doubles.
‘We shot the actors pretending to have sex and then had the body doubles, who really did have sex, and in post we will digital-impose the two. So above the waist it will be the star and the below the waist it will be the doubles.’
