Abel Ferrara continues to insist disgraced French politician Dominique Strauss-Kahn will be the inspiration for an upcoming film. First revealed at the tail end of last year, reports surfaced that the director was looking at Gerard Depardieu and Isabelle Adjani to star in a movie that will use the Strasse-Kahn affair, and incidents involving Bill Clinton and Silvio Berlusconi and more to tell a fictionalized tale about sexual scandals. Production company Wild Bunch were quick to downplay any connection to DSK saying the film would only have "a little bit" of influence from his highly publicized incident in New York City. While, we'll have to see how it all plays out, Ferrara is quickly moving on the project.

Update: Wild Bunch has clarified the film will not be about Dominique Strasse-Kahn specifically, but more generally about politicians. "Abel Ferrara is currently writing a script about politics, the weakness of today’s politician, who is at the same time all-powerful and lost, miserable in his personal life," Vincent Maraval said. Both Depardieu and Adjani are nowhere near to being locked. As you were. [THR]
