Ezra Miller to play Mia Wasikowska’s lover in ‘Madame Bovary’

Ezra Miller wide 560x282After scaring audiences as a teen killer in We Need to Talk About Kevin, Ezra Miller will be tackling a decidedly lighter roles. He has The Perks of Being A Wallflower coming this year and Variety is reporting that Miller has signed on to star as one of Mia Wasikowska’s lovers in the new adaptation of Madame Bovary.  This new adaptation written by Rose Barrenche, the script will maintain the period setting with the drama unfolding with a modern mentality.

Surveying the synopsis of Madame Bovary, it seems likely that Miller will play Léon Dupuis, the flirtatious law student that first tempts Emma (Wasikowska) after she enters into high society. It will be pretty interesting seeing Miller in a decidedly less creepy role and taking the challenge of being in a period piece.

Madame Bovary will start shooting in Europe later this year.
