So, will Brian De Palma's "Passion" be a long awaited return to form or another ambitious disappointment? Well, we'll still have to wait and see, but we'd be lying if we said that the images released thus far haven't been making us excited. And now you can add one more to the pile.

With the release of a second teaser trailer of Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master" this morning, we got another look at one of the most anticipated films of the year. And with the picture already slated for an October 13th release, for some traveling film critics and fans, and those prepared to head to Italy, the Venice Film Festival could be where the film makes its world premiere, with artistic director Alberto Barbera suggesting a few weeks back that Anderson was heading to the Lido for the fest, which kicks off on August 29th.

The Cannes Film Festival has barely had time to put away the red carpet, and already eyes are looking to August and the Venice Film Festival. And perhaps in an effort to beat speculators to the punch, the fest's new artistic director Alberto Barbera is looking to make his first year memorable, and recently revealed to THR the titles that cinephiles can expect to pop up on the Lido. And it's a pretty envious batch of movies.

Since it seems like Brian De Palma has almost, sort-of, maybe, nearly been attached to dozens of projects over the past decade, anytime actual physical evidence surfaces of him making a movie, it’s reason for celebration. It’s enough to make you want to scream, “It’s really happening!” at the top of your lungs, annoying your coworkers and friends. But that’s what we just did when we saw these brand new behind-the-scenes set photos of Rachel McAdams, wearing a lovely pink number, on the set of De Palma’s new thriller “Passion."

There's Paul W.S. Anderson of 'Resident Evil' fame, and there's renowned helmer Paul Thomas Anderson. But we'll now have to throw in another Paul Anderson to the mix -- this time without a middle name or initials. The little-known actor is probably best recognized as Colonel Sebastien Moran in "Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows" and has set up a reunion with his leading ladies on that film, Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace, booking a role on Brian De Palma's "Passion."

After a few stalled efforts and possible projects that didn't quite get moving, Brian De Palma's "Passion" is going full steam ahead, and it looks like it could be his starriest outing since "The Black Dahlia." The film, a loose remake of Alain Corneau's "Love Crime," already has Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace slotted as the dueling leads, and now two more excellent actors are coming aboard.

Dario Marianelli To Score Brian De Palma's 'Passion'

Brian De Palma, whether you love him or hate him, always has a knack for choosing composers. Whether its the twinkly, sexy romanticism of Pino Donaggio in "Blow Out," "Body Double," and "Dressed to Kill;" the brooding eroticism of Bernard Herrmann in "Sisters" and "Obsession;" or the more off-kilter experimentalism of Ryuichi Sakamoto in "Snake Eyes," "Mission to Mars," and "Femme Fatale"; De Palma knows how to match the musician with the material, almost seamlessly. Even his big budget Hollywood job, "Mission: Impossible," which had a last minute replacement score cooked up by Danny Elfman, remains one of that composer's greatest, least heralded efforts. And that knack seems to have continued, with Film Music Reporter noting that the filmmaker has brought on Dario Marianelli, of "Atonement" and "Jane Eyre" fame, for his latest project, an erotic thriller called "Passion."

For Brian De Palma fanatics, it's been an agonizingly long wait for another sexy, stylish spellbinder. His last feature was 2007 incendiary "Redacted," which was a noble failure, but a failure just the same. Honestly, we can only watch our Criterion "Blow Out" Blu-rays so many times. Thankfully, word comes down from Anne Thompson that his new movie, "Passion," a loose remake of the recent French thriller "Love Crime," has picked up a cast member and set a date for principle photography.
