Official First Look at Roman Polanski's Adaptation of 'God of Carnage'
Over a year ago we found out that a house arrested Roman Polanski was already hard at work on his next film, an adaptation of the Tony award-winning play God of Carnage. Then later that year a stellar cast came together with Jodie Foster, Kate Winslet, Christoph Waltz and John C. Reilly as two sets of parents brought together by an altercation between their respective children. Now the film is simply being called Carnage and production is underway overseas in Europe, but Empire has our first look at the film featuring the main characters as they seem to be meeting for the first time. Check out the first look below!
Here's our first look at Carnage (see a larger version and on-set photos at Empire)
It's a simple photo, but with this cast, I can't wait to see how this somewhat comedic drama comes together. Also, the isolated nature of the story is perfect for Polanski. In addition Foster recently revealed, "It all happens in real-time, so it’s about an hour and 45 minutes of negotiation between two sets of parents and how it all falls apart. Kind of like Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?, but a little funnier. There’s a lot of wit.” That just has me even more interested in seeing how it turns out. I know plenty of people are still fuming with Polanski about his criminal past, but let's try and stay on topic about the promise of this new film. What do you think?
