Belle is cast 'Adrift' in Brazilian pic


Camilla Belle, one of the stars of "10,000 BC," is returning to her Brazilian roots to shoot the Portuguese-language drama "Adrift," which Heitor Dhalia is directing for Fernando Meirelles' O2 Films. Universal International is financing and distributing.

Set in the 1980s, the movie, written by Dhalia, centers on a 14-year-old girl who struggles with her life when she learns of the infidelities of her father (Vincent Cassel) while undergoing her own sexual awakening.

Belle will play a young woman having an affair with the father.

The movie will be released in Brazil in 2009.

Belle, who speaks Portuguese and Spanish, was born in the U.S. Her mother is from Brazil.

Although "10,000 BC" has made $85 million domestically, the prehistoric epic has grossed close to $145 million internationally.

Belle is repped by Endeavor, Deborah Gould and attorney Marcy Morris.
