In May it was announced that Eric Elmosnino is set to star as Gainsbourg, and this week  brings a flood of more casting announcements via Allocine: French supermodel Laetitia Casta as Gainsbourg's lover/collaborator Brigitte Bardot, model/actress Anna Mouglalis (l'Histoire Secrete) as singer Juliette Gréco, Mylène Jampanoï as Gainsbourg's partner Bambou, singer Philippe Katerine as supporter and novelist Boris Vian, and Yolande Moreau (Paris, je t'aime) as Fréhel, an early musical influence. More roles are still yet to be cast, including Gainsbourg's daughter (and Science of Sleep star) Charlotte and famed yé-yé singer Francoise Hardy.

French-based Canadian musician Gonzales has had early involvement in Heroic Life's music, playing the piano pieces that Elmosnino mimes on-screen. The songwriter, who has produced and co-written much of Feist's breakout solo material, will also potentially appear on the soundtrack, depending on Sfar's decision regarding the use of Gainsbourg originals or covers for the film.
