Even without being massively fond of many of the films produced from his screenplays (not least his pretty bad directorial debut "London Boulevard"), we're fond of William Monahan and his salty dialogue, best embodied in his Oscar-winning script for "The Departed," and we're always hopeful that he'll come up with the goods. So despite our feelings about "London Boulevard," we're hopeful for his follow-up "Mojave," not least because of the cast he's assembling.

So remember about a year ago when Abel Ferrara was talking up his next movie, one that would be inspired/based on disgraced French politician Dominique Strauss-Kahn? While producers were cagier, Ferrara was talking up a shoot last summer with Gerard Depardieu in the lead role, with Isabelle Adjani to co-star? Well, that didn't happen and now it looks like he's going to have to find a new leading lady.

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]
