Tilda Swinton has joined the previously-announced Nicolas Cage and Pierce Brosnan in Roman Polanski’s political thriller The Ghost, an adaptation of the Robert Harris book.
Variety says that production begins this September in Europe.
Cage will play a ghostwriter hired abruptly to finish the memoirs of an ex-British prime minister after the first scribe turned up dead. The ghostwriter’s research leads him to uncover skeletons in the politician’s closet that put the writer’s life in danger.
Swinton will play the wife of the former prime minister (Brosnan). Her marriage is crumbling, and she falls for the writer.
