Brian De Palma, director of such classic films as Scarface, The Untouchables, and Dressed To Kill, is set to go behind the camera for the first time since 2007’s Redacted, with Passion, a remake of the recent French thriller, Love Crime.
Noomi Rapace, famous for her role as Lisbeth Salander in the original The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo films, is set to star as one of the two female leads, and her co-star on the upcoming Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (due out tomorrow), Rachel McAdams, is now in talks to join as the other female lead, Collider report.

Watch out. Their intricately plotted tale of love and skullduggery shows them to be capable of the perfect crime. Though Mr. Corneau died recently, I would guess that Nathalie Carter could likely work out a robbery, a kidnapping, a murder and assuredly get away with these felonies. That’s how credible and involving is this complex tale of love, sex, envy, and humiliation—all the things that make office »
