Back last January, Brian De Palma (who’s been slightly missing in action for the last few years), attached himself to a movie called Passion,which is a remake of a French movie called Love Crime. Now Thompson On Hollywood reports Sherlock Holmes star Rachel McAdams is in talks to join Noomi Rapace in the movie, and that things have moved forward to the point it’s eyeing a March shoot in Berlin.
The film is about a young woman who takes revenge on an older female executive who has taken advantage of the protagonist one too many times. In the original, which starred Ludivine Sagnier and Kristen Scott Thomas, the younger woman steals the older one’s ideas, which causes their rivalry to start burning, until it reaches the point of murder! However De Palma has swappped things round so it’s the older woman nicking things from the young hotshot.
It’ll be the Scarface director’s first movie since Redacted in 2007, and takes him back to the realm of Hitchcockian thrillers he loves so much.
