Brian De Palma

Since he hasn't directed a film since the 2007 war drama Redacted, director Brian De Palma is overdue for another feature film. Thankfully, Variety reports the Scarface director will be at the helm of Passion, a remake of the French languge thriller Crime d'amour (or Love Crime). Originally directed by Alain Corneau and starring Kristen Scott Thomas and European actor Ludivine Sagnier, the story follows two feuding corporate executives, one of whom is driven to murder the other. Production is slated to begin in August as in international co-production between France, Germany, Spain and the UK. More info below!

De Palma sounds extremely excited about the project saying, "Not since Dressed to Kill have I had a chance to combine eroticism, suspense, mystery and murder into one spellbinding cinematic experience." Not cast members have been announced yet, but the film will be set in the United Kingdom so I'm betting there will be some talented British actors brought on board to make this happen. But the plan is to announce the films on-screen talent by the time the Cannes Film Festival rolls around in May, so we'll be waiting for a few months for any big updates. Interested?
