Buscemi plays a burned-out political journalist who agrees to interview a popular B-actress (Miller), following her around for a day as they develop an unexpected relationship. A July domestic release is planned.
Interview is based on the 2003 feature by Van Gogh, who was killed in November 2004 in Amsterdam. Islamic radical Mohammed Bouyeri confessed to the slaying and was jailed for life. Van Gogh's killing followed a televised airing of his short film Submission, which portrays violence against women in Islamic societies.
The film was announced as a trilogy of Van Gogh remakes, along with Stanley Tucci's Blind Date, starring Patricia Clarkson, and Bob Balaban's 1-900. Date is now expected to begin shooting in May in Holland, but details about who ultimately will direct and star in 1-900 -- which had some presales during last year's Festival de Cannes -- are still up in the air.
