Mickey Rourke was the star of one of the steamiest movies of the 80s, 9 1/2 Weeks, but I think we all figured his days of hot romance were over. But an Oscar nomination can do funny things for a man's career, so Rourke will be joining Alice Braga and Vincent Cassel in 11 Minutes an adaptation of Paulo Coehlo's novel.

Braga, who has made a career of playing mysterious hot women (I Am Legend, Blindness) gets the lead this time, playing a girl who swears off romance after being betrayed by a lover. She then somehow winds up as a high-priced hooker, with Cassel playing a music exec who gets her into S&M, and Rourke playing the manager of the sex club.

Variety notes that Hany Abu-Assad, who directed the acclaimed Palestinian drama Paradise Now, will helm the film. The international cast and literary source makes the whole thing sound pretty classy, even if it is about, uh, a sex club.
