"Passion"

Canadian distributor Entertainment One has picked up North American rights to Brian De Palma's sexy femme faceoff "Passion," with plans for a 2013 release. The psychological thriller, which stars Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace, played at both Venice and Toronto.

The deal was negotiated by ICM Partners along with SBS’ Saïd Ben Saïd and eOne’s David Reckziegel and Sejin Croninger; ICM Partners also reps De Palma.

"Passion" is a remake of the 2010 French film by Alain Corneau, "Love Crime," starring Kristin Scott Thomas and Ludivine Sagnier. The screenwriter for "Love Crime," Natalie Carter, collaborated with De Palma on the adaptation.

Here's TOH's Toronto Q&A with De Palma, which covers everything from the hair-raising sex toys in "Passion" and improvised on-set makeouts between McAdams and Rapace to his good wishes for the upcoming "Carrie" remake.
