Christoph Waltz is set to star in the upcoming thriller titled True Crimes. At this moment we know that the whole thing is based on David Grann‘s New Yorker article Letter From Poland, and that Django Unchained star comes on board to play the police officer who becomes entangled in the dark underworld of Poland’s sex rings, prostitution and drugs. Good for Waltz, this time he’s going to be a good guy…
So, according to THR, Grann’s article involves the case of Krystian Bala, a Polish writer who was convicted of murder in 2007.
The murder for which he was convicted had been a cold case, baffling the Polish police for years, and had been called a perfect crime. Bala, never a suspect in the case, attracted attention when he published a novel that detailed a murder very much like the one that was frustrating the police.
As we said at the beginning of this report, Waltz jumps in to play an officer named Jacek Wroblewski, aka the man who reopens the cold case.
At this moment – no director attached to the project, but the good thing is that Roman Polanski has been mentioned as a possibility to helm True Crimes.
Brett Ratner and David Gerson are on board to produce the pic, and as usual – with every new update – we’ll be back, so make sure you stay tuned!
