Thompson On Hollywood's Liza Foreman has an exclusive scoop today, stating that "Brian De Palma is wasting no time moving forward on Passion," which she adds is marked to begin shooting on March 5 in Berlin (previous reports had mentioned the film is to shoot in Cologne, Berlin, and London). Foreman adds, "Word is that Rachel McAdams is in talks to join Noomi Rapace in the film based on Alain Corneau's twisted murder tale" Love Crime. If so, Rapace and McAdams must really like each other, as they both star together in Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, which opens Friday. This, to my mind, would be a dream cast for the leads in this film, which De Palma is scripting himself.

Foreman's article mentions that "De Palma had been prepping The Key Man for QED productions, which was readying for a late 2011/early 2012 shoot date." She does not say whether that production has stalled, or is still trying to make its planned start soon. De Palma would have a short but workable window in which to shoot The Key Man if they had it ready to go by early January, but if not, we might assume they were moving that project to late spring at the earliest. It seems likely we will begin to hear a little more about both projects in the very near future...

Geoff - The recent volume of new posts on A La Mod has been exciting. It has been too long waiting for a new film to be released, and to read of some progress on new De Palma projects means 2012 should be an even better year for us. Merry Christmas to you and all De Palma fans. - Randy

Does anyone know if this still plans to shoot partly in London? Or is it set only in Berlin?

Very exciting, thanks for the news!

btw anyone noticed mentions of De Palma in "M:I-GP"? One review stated that GP ranks better than M:I-2, but worse than M:I-3, while the first one is out of the chart, because De Palma is untouchable :)

Hi, Ade-- the film is actually set in London, so they will shoot exteriors in the U.K., and shoot on soundstages in Berlin.

"Passion" is up now at IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1829012/

 It might not mean anything now but it's just nice to finally see a new Brian De Palma movie being made.

I am, well, thrilled that De Palma is writing and directing another thriller!  I have a really good feeling about it, and I hope that this will mean more work from him in the future.  I just hope the project doesn't fall through, because De Palma has been involved with SO MANY projects that never happened.  But the word about casting is a good sign that it will.  I really hope De Palma chooses Pino Donaggio to do the score.  Absolutely NOBODY can score a thriller like Donaggio, especially ones with such visual sense as De Palma's.  I still need to watch Love Crime – I'm going to do that soon.

I watched Sisters last night and everytime Jennifer Salt was onscreen I kept thinking of Noomi Rapace, seriously they look similiar and share mannerisms!

Now on IMDb, it doesn't say that Noomi and Rachel are "in talk" anymore, so I'm hoping that means they're officially casted and the movie is a go.
