We wanted to remind you that “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” is out in theaters now in the US/UK. Be sure to see it in theaters if you can. Rachel will return as Irene Adler but she only has a small appearance. The movie currently holds a ‘fresh’ rating with 66% at Rotten Tomatoes.
A new possible project was announced yesterday, IndieWire first reported that Rachel is currently in talks to join her “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” co-star Noomi Rapace in “Passion” which will be directed by Brian De Palma.
Brian de Palma is wasting no time moving forward on “Passion,” his remake of the 2011 French psychodrama, “Crime d’Amour,” which is shaping up for a March 5th shoot date in Berlin. Word is that Rachel McAdams is in talks to join Noomi Rapace in the film based on Alain Corneau’s twisted murder tale starring Kristin Scott Thomas as an older executive who takes revenge on her protege (Ludivine Sagnier). Rapace and McAdams also co-star in the upcoming “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows,” which opens stateside on Friday.
Budgeted at $20 million, Said Ben Said (“Carnage”) is producing the film with Paris-based SBS Productions, which was also involved in the French film. Writer-director De Palma’s version tells the story of woman who turns murderess when her boss steals her idea.
Keep in mind this is still a rumored project. Earlier this year we also heard rumors Rachel was attached to “The Emperor’s Children“, “Ecstasia” and other project but still none of them are confirmed.
Update: Deadline posted a new article and has more information about the movie and casting. It looks like this project is official, most of the time Deadline is reliable.
Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace are set to star in Brian De Palma’s remake of Alain Corneau’s 2010 thriller Crime D’Amour. The De Palma version will be titled Passion and begins shooting in Berlin on March 5.
Palma adding his spin to a script he wrote. A major male role and a smaller female role have yet to be cast. Those will likely be played by Europeans, with deals expected to be firmed up in January.
