Peter Strickland ("Berberian Sound Studio," "Katalin Varga") has selected "The Duke of Burgundy" at Rook Films as his third directorial effort. The BFI Film fund is set to finance the project.

Chiara D’Anna will play an amateur lepidopterist whose wayward desires test the limits of her lover's tolerance. Ben Wheatley is set to produce and shooting kicks off early next year.

Strickland's 'Berberian' scored four awards, including Best Picture, at the British Independent Film Awards a few days ago. Wheatley is the filmmaker behind the acclaimed "Kill List" and the just released "Sightseers".
