Cooper, Herfurth Feel The “Passion”

Dominic Cooper and Karoline Herfurth have reportedly scored roles in “Passion”, Brian De Palma’s English language remake of Alain Corneau’s 2010 French psychological drama “Crime d’amour” (Love Crime) for SBS Productions reports Mediz Biz (via The Playlist).

Kristin Scott Thomas and Ludivine Sagnier starred in the original which followed the young assistant of a ruthless and emotionally sadistic business executive driven to murder her boss.

This $30 million remake, a French-German-British-Spainish co-production, will be set in the UK with Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace slotted for the lead roles.

The plot also has a slight adjustment in that the main motivator this time will be the boss character stealing her underling’s idea.
