Eva Green (Casino Royale) has signed to star in the futuristic drama Womb, Hungarian helmer Benedek Fliegauf's first English-language film, Variety reported.

Produced by Roman Paul and Gerhard Meixner of Berlin-based Razor Film (Waltz With Bashir) and Andras Muhi of Inforg Studio Budapest, the movie tells the story of a grieving widow, played by Green, who decides to clone her late husband. Matt Smith (who has been tapped to replace David Tennant in the BBC's Doctor Who) co-stars.

Fliegauf, who won a Golden Leopard in Locarno in 2007 for his experimental movie Milky Way, will begin production on the film in March on the North Sea coast.
