Summit has just debuted the official poster for Roman Polanski's The Ghost Writer today. A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to see the film and I actually really enjoyed it. In fact, I was quoted in USA Today talking about how great it was and my thoughts the situation. It's a great mystery film with a great cast and an incredible story with some riveting twists and turns. And the score by Alexandre Desplat was incredible as well. To reference my own quote from USA Today, "it's very Hitchcockian." This poster looks pretty good, I love Pierce Brosnan on the wall behind him. Watch the first trailer here as well if you haven't seen it yet!
The Ghost Writer is directed by Oscar winning Polish-French filmmaker Roman Polanski, of many great films including When Angels Fall, Repulsion, Dance of the Vampires, Rosemary's Baby, Chinatown, Frantic, The Ninth Gate, The Pianist, and Oliver Twist most recently. The screenplay was co-written by Polanski and novelist Robert Harris. This is based on Harris' own novel of the same name as well. It was filmed in early 2009 and finished while Polanski was under house arrest in Switzerland earlier this year. Summit Entertainment is bringing The Ghost Writer to limited theaters on February 19th next month.
