Entertainment One has acquired the North American rights to the Passion, an upcoming Brian De Palma’s movie that we already wrote so much about.
So, I’m sure you all know that this project has an awesome cast on board, which includes Noomi Rapace and Rachel McAdams as two women in the dog-eat-dog world of international business.
Based on the 2010 French thriller titled Love Crime, the movie centers on a woman named Isabelle who has unlimited admiration for her direct superior, Christine, a woman well-schooled in the ways of power.
Unfortunately, Christine enjoys holding sway over Isabelle, leads her one step at a time and ever more deeply into a game of seduction and manipulation, of dominance and servitude. The game is played for keeps, and there is no turning back.
Passion had its world premiere in competition at the Venice International Film Festival, and Entertainment One company plans an early 2013 release in the U.S. and Canada.
