French singer-turned-actress Vanessa Paradis has inked a deal to star in a new road movie called BILLY AND COLETTE.

The stunning partner of movie hunk Johnny Depp will play a woman who will do anything to have a baby.

Directing duties will be performed by screenwriter SERGE FRYDMAN - who wrote previous Paradis movie THE GIRL ON THE BRIDGE and is making his debut as a film-maker.

No other casting details have been confirmed but the search is already on for the actor who will play Billy, the son of an ageing prostitute who accompanies Colette on her journey.
