OUT OF THE BLUE: French actor and model Gaspard Ulliel, the face of Chanel’s male fragrance Blue, will play the role of Yves Saint Laurent in a new biopic to be directed by Bertrand Bonello, according to Eric Altmayer, the producer of the film. Shooting on “Saint Laurent” is due to start next spring, he added. The film is cowritten by Bonello — whose last feature, “House of Tolerance,” premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last year — and Thomas Bidegain, known for his work with director Jacques Audiard on “Rust and Bone” and “A Prophet.”

Ulliel is best remembered for his role as a young Hannibal Lecter in “Hannibal Rising,” and was recently seen in the historical drama “The Princess of Montpensier.” He has also appeared in a campaign for Longchamp alongside Kate Moss.
