"Rust and Bone" and "Bullhead" star Matthias Schoenaerts is in final negotiations to join Michelle Williams and Kristin Scott Thomas in Saul Dibb's WWII drama "Suite Francaise."

Based on Irene Nemirovsky's novel, the story charts the love affair between a young French woman (Williams) and the German officer (Schoenaerts) assigned to watch her in Nazi-occupied France.

Thomas is already onboard to play Williams' mother. Shooting aims to kick off in London next spring.
