Gabriel Byrne is to star opposite Isabelle Huppert and Jesse Eisenberg in Louder Than Bombs, the first English-language film from Norwegian director Joachim Trier.

Screen Daily reports the film tells the story of a late war photographer (Huppert) and the secret her husband (Byrne) and two sons (one played by Eisenberg) discover three years after her death.

Director and co-writer Trier said: "Louder Than Bombs is a character-driven piece so I am obviously thrilled to have such incredible actors working with me on this.

"Isabelle, Jesse, and Gabriel are all actors I have wanted to work with for a long time, so having them play together as one family feels remarkable."

The film will shoot in the US and Germany in the autumn.
