Last December we reported that Summit Entertainment had picked up the North American distribution rights for The Ghost Writer, based on the 2007 thriller The Ghost by Robert Harris. But first, the film will open in Germany on February 11th and the a new trailer has been released.
The Ghost Writer stars Pierce Brosnan as a former British Prime Minister and Ewan McGregor as his ghostwriter, who uncovers secrets from the past; see more in the book synopsis below.
About The Ghost: Adam Lang has been Britain's longest serving and most controversial prime minister of the last half century. And now that he's left office, he's accepted one of history's largest cash advances to compose a tell-all (or at least, tell-some) memoir of his life and years of power. As pressure mounts for Lang to complete this magnum opus, he hires a professional ghostwriter to finish the book. As he sets to work, the ghostwriter discovers many more secrets than Lang intends to reveal, secrets with the power to alter world politics, secrets with the power to kill.
The international trailer can be viewed below (in English with French subtitles):
