For a while now, Brian De Palma has been putting together a movie called Passion, which will be his first film since 2007’s Redacted. Now the cast has grown as Mediabiz (via The Playlist) reports that Dominic Cooper and Karoline Herfurth (The Reader) have signed up to star opposite the already cast Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace.
The film is a remake of Alan Corneau’s French thriller Love Crime, 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 swapped things round so it’s the older woman nicking things from the young hotshot.
There’s no news on exactly who Cooper and Herfurth will play, but shooting is expected to start soon.
