UPDATE: COOPER NOT PART OF CAST
BRITISH ACTOR LISTED MATTER-OF-FACTLY IN GERMAN REPORT FROM BERLIN FEST
MediaBiz reports from the Berlin International Film Festival (which ended this past weekend) that the German-Swiss distributor Ascot Elite Entertainment Group has picked up the theatrical and home distribution rights to Brian De Palma's Passion. What is particularly of note in the article, however, is that it includes British actor Dominic Cooper as a cast member of Passion, along with Rachel McAdams, Noomi Rapace, and Karoline Herfurth. Cooper would presumably be playing the male character who becomes a sort of pawn between McAdams' CEO and Rapace's deputy. Cooper made a big splash last year playing dual roles as Saddam Hussein's ruthless playboy son, Uday Hussein, and his body double in Lee Tamahori's The Devil's Double. That film was widely compared to De Palma's Scarface. Its cast also included Ludivine Sagnier, who starred with Kristin Scott Thomas in Alain Corneau's Love Crime, on which De Palma's Passion is based.
