MONSTER INTERVIEW IN NEW ISSUE OF 'SO FILM' FROM FRANCE
Thanks to Thomas for letting us know about the monster interview with Brian De Palma in the current issue of So Film, and also to Patrick for pointing out that the article inside provides a title for De Palma's upcoming project with producer Saïd Ben Saïd, which has been described as a loose adaptation of Emile Zola's Thérèse Raquin. According to the magazine, the title for that project is Magic Hour. Emily Mortimer, who had previously auditioned for De Palma's The Black Dahlia, will play the lead. Screen Daily's Geoffrey Macnab has previously reported that "the story is about a film director and two actors shooting a movie version of Zola's novel and finding that it reflects experiences in their own lives."
Another upcoming film adaptation of Thérèse Raquin was recently retitled In Secret. It marks the directorial debut of Charlie Stratton, and stars Elizabeth Olsen, Oscar Isaac, and Jessica Lange. The film is to be released February 21, 2014. A trailer was just released this past week.
Meanwhile, the interview in So Film was conducted recently in New York. In it, Fernando Ganzo asks De Palma questions that cover his entire career. It may take me some time, but I'll try to get some translations and share highlights in the coming days.
