IFC Films Feels 'Passion' For Brian De Palma's Latest

The Playlist By Joe Cunningham | The Playlist September 25, 2012 at 11:16AM

When was the last time you were excited about a Brian De Palma film? Was it during the last decade? Well, his latest, the sexy, psychological thriller “Passion” starring Noomi Rapace and Rachel McAdams, might get your pulse racing in another way. It’s a remake of Alain Corneau’s posthumously released 2010 film “Love Crime” (which starred Ludivine Sagnier and Kristin Scott Thomas) in which a young businesswoman plots revenge after being ritually humiliated and threatened and having her ideas stolen by her boss and mentor.

When was the last time you were excited about a Brian De Palma film? Was it during the last decade? Well, his latest, the sexy, psychological thriller “Passion” starring Noomi Rapace and Rachel McAdams, might get your pulse racing in another way. It’s a remake of Alain Corneau’s posthumously released 2010 film “Love Crime” (which starred Ludivine Sagnier and Kristin Scott Thomas) in which a young businesswoman plots revenge after being ritually humiliated and threatened and having her ideas stolen by her boss and mentor.

It was only a week ago that we listed it amongst our 5 Fall Festival Films That Still Need Distribution after playing at TIFF and in Venice (where we saw it and awarded it a lackluster C+ rating). Well, maybe someone over at IFC Films read that piece because they now look set to acquire the picture’s North American distribution rights. The film had already secured distribution in a number of key Western European countries (although notably not yet in the U.K.) but this should mean that U.S. audiences will be able to catch it at some point in the next twelve months at least.

So far the film seems to be selling itself on the sex angle – it’s all lipstick, lesbian kisses, masks and lingerie in the posters and images released so far – and we wouldn’t expect IFC to stray too far from that formula as they launch their own marketing campaign. There’s no news on a release date yet, but in the meantime there’s a pre-TIFF trailer that you can feast your eyes on. [THR]
