Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace are kissing somewhere out there and we’re like – sleeping? Wtf? Ok, our mistake, but wake up guys, it’s time for us to have a little chat about a project simply titled Passion!
It comes from director Brian de Palma and tells the story of a deadly power struggle between two women in the dog-eat-dog world of international business. Yeah, it’s an erotic thriller, I still can’t believe we were about to miss the fun!
I sure hope you’re enjoying the first official image from the whole thing. On one side we have McAdams as Christine, woman who possesses the natural elegance and casual ease associated with one who has a healthy relationship with money and power. On other side, we have Rapace as Isabelle, an innocent, lovely and easily exploited admiring protégé full of cutting-edge ideas that Christine has no qualms about stealing.
They’re on the same team, after all… Christine takes pleasure in exercising control over the younger woman, leading her one step at a time ever deeper into a game of seduction and manipulation, dominance and humiliation. But when Isabelle falls into bed with one of Christine’s lovers, war breaks out.
On the night of the murder, Isabelle is at the ballet, while Christine receives an invitation to seduction. From whom? Christine loves surprises. Naked she goes to meet the mystery lover waiting in her bedroom…
If this story somehow sounds familiar to you, let us just remind you that Passion is actually a loose remake of Alain Corneau’s 2010 Love Crime, which starred Ludivine Sagnier and Kristin Scott-Thomas.
Beside McAdams and Rapace, De Palma’s version also stars Dominic Cooper, Paul Anderson, Karoline Herfurth and Leila Rozario.
Passion is still without an official release date, but as usual – we’ll let you know.
In the meanwhile, let us know what you think about this project so far, and stay tuned!
