Benicio Del Toro will headline Arnaud Desplechin's next film, AKA Jimmy Picard, Deadline reports. He joins Mathieu Amalric and Gina McKee in the adaptation of the non-fiction text "Reality and Dream: Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian" by George Devereux.

Published in 1951, Devreux's work focuses on a Native American soldier using the alias Jimmy Picard (to be played by Del Toro) who, following World War II, is troubled by psychosomatic illness. Working with Devereux (Amalric), the two form a bond of friendship amidst their professional, medical relationship.

Desplechin is best known for his 2008 film, A Christmas Tale, while Del Toro can next be seen in Oliver Stone's Savages.

Production on AKA Jimmy Picard begins next week in Michigan.
