The original Girl with a Dragon Tattoo Noomi Rapace and Rachel McAdams are costarring in Brian DePalma’s Passion, a reimagining of the French drama with psychosexual undertones Love Crime that starred Kristen Scott Thomas and Ludivine Sagnier (Swimming Pool, 8 Women). And the trailer has just dropped!
A sort of Working Girl meets The Business of Strangers, Passion features McAdams (Mean Girls, Red Eye) as a cutthroat business executive who takes credit for her protégé’s idea. The protégé (played by Rapace) then takes revenge on her boss. Intrigue, madness and sexual games ensue.
DePalma is a master at the psycho sexual thriller having directed cult favorites Dressed to Kill, Body Double and Sisters, and more recently The Black Dahlia.
Check out McAdams and Rapace below. I’d have pegged Rapace as the boss and McAdams as the protégé but this has a certain symmetry to it as well.
