Josh Charles will star in a "daring" French drama called Bird People, Deadline reports. He'll play an American who arrives in France and starts a brand-new life, opposite French actress Anaïs Demoustier. Bird is co-written and directed by Pascale Ferran, whose last movie was 2006's well-received Lady Chatterly, and will be in both English and French. Curiously, the film also includes "a supernatural element," according to Deadline, but we can all agree that there would indeed be something otherworldly about Josh Charles speaking en francais.
