Willem Dafoe Heads Into the Woods to Face the ‘Antichrist’

It’s about time someone grows a pair and takes on the devil in a very real, a very non-cheesy way. It was announced tonight that Willem Dafoe (Daybreakers, Cirque du Freak, Spider-Man) will star alongside Charlotte Gainsbourg in Antichrist, which will be directed by Lars von Trier. Anders Thomas Jensen wrote the script with von Trier. In the psychological thriller that evolves into a horror film, Dafoe and Gainsbourg will play a couple who retreat to an isolated cabin in the woods following the death of their child. Production begins this month in Germany.
