Brian De Palma Targets McAdams and Rapace for Passion


Brian De Palma, as announced earlier this year, is planning to make his next feature a remake of the recent French film, Crime d’Amour (which translates to “Crime of Passion”). Indiewire now has an update, suggesting that De Palma already has his sights set on his leads: Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace, both of whom star in this week’s Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.

The original film (the very last from recently-deceased director Alain Corneau) starred Kristin Scott Thomas as an executive mentoring a young ingénue (Ludivine Saginer) who soon becomes her cutthroat rival.

Outside of Holmes, McAdams can soon be seen in The Vow. Rapace, meanwhile, stars in next summer’s Prometheus and will soon shoot Dead Man Down.
