Pete Doherty has confirmed he is set to star in a new French film about the 19th century poet and dramatist Alfred de Musset.

Blogging on his new website, Doherty wrote that filming for Confession d'un Enfant du Siecle starts on December 27. Charlotte Gainsbourg is also reportedly set to star in the film.

In his blog Doherty wrote about his first waltz lesson in preparation for the film.

"My character must display natural grace and poise – as was expected of a young aristocrat and dandy of 1830s French society," he wrote. "I was going to film the lesson, but it didn't seem appropriate. The teacher was just as I had imagined – straight-backed, horsewhip in hand, and a brutal perfectionist. What a day!"

Signing off, Doherty joked: "I hope [the film crew] have allowed for overtime on the masked ball and waltzing sequences."
