Noomi Rapace, Passion

Well, whatever was going on during the negotiations with IFC Films, it appears Brian De Palma's latest won't be landing the arthouse veterans. But instead, the movie will hit screens with another distributor who is continuing to make a stronger stamp on the theatrical marketplace.

Entertainment One, who made their first real big-screen venture with David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis" this summer and will be releasing the classical world drama "A Late Quartet" with Catherine Keener, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Christopher Walken, have nabbed the North American distribution rights to "Passion." Starring Noomi Rapace and Rachel McAdams, the film is a remake of Alain Corneau's "Love Crime," and tells the tale of two women at an ad agency who clash when their personal relationship falls victim to an office betrayal. The usual De Palma ingredients of sex and deception are found in plentiful number here, though the movie got a mixed reception in Venice and Toronto.

The news comes as the New York Film Festival kicks off today, with the fest presenting the U.S. premiere of the movie. As for the rest of you, "Passion" will land in theaters in early 2013. [Variety]
