Entertainment One nabs Rachel McAdams, Noomi Rapace’s “Passion”

PanARMENIAN.Net - Entertainment One has nabbed North American rights to Brian De Palma's latest polarizing effort, "Passion", TheWrap said.

The psycho-sexual thriller divided critics when it premiered at the Toronto Film Festival this month, with some praising De Palma's virtuoso camera work while others derided its story of erotic obsession as tired.

"The impression is that De Palma is indulging himself with homages to his own Hitchcockian greatest hits, with results that veer close to self-parody on occasion and emphasize just how far this once-outstanding director's creative star has plummeted," Neil Young griped in the pages of The Hollywood Reporter.

Although it's been over a decade since De Palma was a critics' darling, hailed for his stylistic thrillers like "Scarface," "Passion" does boast an impressive array of rising stars such as Rachel McAdams ("The Notebook") and Noomi Rapace ("Prometheus"). It centers on two international businesswomen whose lives become dangerously entangled.

Entertainment One is planning to release the film in the U.S. and Canada in early 2013.
