Brian De Palma To Direct Remake of French Thriller Crime D'Amour

Crime D'Amour (2010)

Variety is reporting that Brian De Palma will direct a remake of the 2010 French thriller Crime D'Amour, retitled Passion.

"Not since Dressed to Kill have I had a chance to combine eroticism, suspense, mystery and murder into one spellbinding cinematic experience," said De Palma.

Crime D'Amour stars Kristin Scott Thomas as the executive of a multinational company and Ludivine Sagnier as her protégé. But when the younger woman starts to take credit for her mentor's ideas, a dangerous game is played out between the two -- one that ultimately goes too far.

Casting for Passion is expected to be announced by the start of the Cannes Film Festival in May, with principal photography beginning during the summer.

  1. I hope this french remake is a box-office hit for De Palma so he can go back to Hollywood and make THE DEMOLISHED MAN.
