Wilkinson Joins Polanski’s “Ghost”

Tom Wilkinson and Jim Belushi have joined the cast of Roman Polanski’s “The Ghost” for Summit Entertainment says The Hollywood Reporter

Pierce Brosnan stars in the film as recently unseated British prime minister Adam Lang (a thinly veiled Tony Blair) who hires a ghostwriter (Ewan McGregor) to pen his memoirs.

He soon suspects foul play while investigating the mysterious drowning of Lang’s former press aide, who was originally serving as the book’s ghostwriter.

“Silence of the Lambs” author Robert Harris adapted the script, with Polanski, from his own novel.

Kim Cattrall, Olivia Williams and Robert Pugh also star. Shooting begins February 4th in Berlin for release as early as the end of the year.
