Roman Polanski Film Gets Swinton, Brosnan, Cage


Roman Polanski's next project has brought on a recent Oscar winner, a man who portrayed James Bond, and. . . a Ghost Rider. Polanski will direct an adaptation of the Robert Harris political thriller The Ghost, with Tilda Swinton, Pierce Brosnan and Nicolas Cage set to star. Variety has more:

Cage will play a ghostwriter hired abruptly to finish the memoirs of an ex-British prime minister after the first scribe turned up dead. The ghostwriter's research leads him to uncover skeletons in the pol's closet that put the writer's life in danger. Swinton will play the wife of the former prime minister (Brosnan). Her marriage is crumbling, and she falls for the writer.

This actually sounds like something Michael Clayton director Tony Gilroy would have done an excellent job directing, but obviously I'm equally curious to see what Polanski (you know, Rosemary's Baby, Chinatown, The Pianist) will be able to do with it.
