The Ghost Writer – Trailer for Roman Polanski’s new film

Posted by LiveFor on January 14, 2010

When a successful British ghostwriter, THE GHOST (Ewan McGregor), agrees to complete the memoirs of former British Prime Minister ADAM LANG (Pierce Brosnan), his agent assures him it’s the opportunity of a lifetime. But the project seems doomed from the start-not least because his predecessor on the project, Lang’s long-term aide, died in an unfortunate accident.

The Ghost flies out to work on the project, in the middle of winter, to an oceanfront house on an island off the U.S. Eastern seaboard. But the day after he arrives, a former British cabinet minister accuses Lang of authorizing the illegal seizure of suspected terrorists and handing them over for torture by the CIA-a war crime. The controversy brings reporters and protesters swarming to the island mansion where Lang is staying with his wife, RUTH, and his personal assistant (and mistress), AMELIA. As The Ghost works, he begins to uncover clues suggesting his predecessor may have stumbled on a dark secret linking Lang to the CIA-and that somehow this information is hidden in the manuscript he left behind. Was Lang in the service of the American intelligence agency while he was prime minister? And was The Ghost’s predecessor murdered because of the appalling truth he uncovered?

Resonating with topical themes, this atmospheric and suspenseful political thriller is a story of deceit and betrayal on every level- sexual, political and literary. In a world in which nothing, and no one, is as it seems, The Ghost quickly discovers that the past can be deadly-and that history is decided by whoever stays alive to write it.

The film stars Ewan McGregor, Pierce Brosnan, Kim Cattrall, Olivia Williams, and Tom Wilkinson.

Roman Polanski’s The Ghost is on hold due to the whole arrest thing

Posted by LiveFor on September 29, 2009

The-Ghost4Roman Polanski’s arrest in Switzerland has put his latest film, The Ghost in limbo.
According to the director’s ICM agent, Jeff Berg, Polanski “had completed much of the editing on The Ghost. But other postproduction work, including music scoring and sound mixing, had yet to be done.”

The Ghost is based on the novel from Robert Harris. It stars Pierce Brosnan as the fictional former British leader Adam Lang. Ewan McGregor plays a ghostwriter that is hired to help complete Lang’s memoirs. Other members of the cast are Kim Cattrall, Tom Wilkinson, Olivia Williams and James Belushi.

The film does not yet have distribution in the U.S., but it has distribution in many territories overseas.

Also, Polanski’s French lawyer Herve Temime says that the director is going to fight extradition to the U.S. In a statement Temime said that he would ask Swiss authorities to release the 76-year-old director immediately.

“After that, his defense team will demonstrate the illegal nature of the extradition request he is facing,” he stated. “He is in a fighting mood and determined to defend himself.”

Polanski left America in 1978 when he pled guilty to having unlawful sexual intercourse with a 13-year-old girl in Los Angeles.

He was arrested over the weekend in Zurich. He had traveled there to receive a lifetime achievement award from the Zurich Film Festival.

The Ghost is Polanski’s first movie with a U.S. setting since 1974’s Chinatown. Areas in Germany doubled for the story’s New England settings.

It is currently not known when work might continue on The Ghost. Berg remains optimistic about his client’s ability to work this situation out.

“I’m always optimistic when it comes to Roman,” Berg stated. “He’s strong, and he has survived every situation imaginable.”

The Ghost – Roman Polanski has cast Tom Wilkinson, Pierce Brosnan, Ewan McGregor and…James Belushi?

Posted by LiveFor on January 23, 2009

/film have the news that Roman Polanski’s The Ghost has added Tom Wilkinson and James Belushi to its cast. That’s right, James Belushi. Looks like he’s made it to the big leagues.

They join Pierce Brosnan, Ewan McGregor, Kim Cattrall and Olivia Williams. The film will start shooting in Berlin on 4th February.

It is an adaption from the Robert Harris novel and tells the story of a Adam Lang (Pierce Brosnan), a former British Prime Minister who’s in the process of writing his memoirs. When the death of a colleague disrupts his life, a ghostwriter (Ewan McGregor) is called in to assist him in completing the book. But when the ghostwriter digs a little deeper into his subject’s life, he finds disturbing secrets that have far-reaching consequences.

Sounds pretty intriguing and I may pick up the book to have a read. Anyone read it? Is it a good tale?

As for Polanski and his constant battle with the US legal people it looks as if the court case has been delayed.

An appeals court has halted a planned hearing on the legal travails of the
director Roman Polanski. On Wednesday Judge Peter Espinoza of the Los Angeles
County Superior Court was supposed to consider Mr. Polanski’s request that a
longstanding case against him, in which he was found guilty of having sex with a
13-year-old girl in 1977, be dismissed. Mr. Polanski claimed, among other
things, that there had been misconduct by a judge and a deputy district attorney
on the eve of his sentencing. Judge Espinoza had already thrown out a request by
Mr. Polanski’s lawyers to move the case from Los Angeles, where they said he
couldn’t get a fair hearing. Responding to a late request by Mr. Polanski’s
lawyers, the appeals court issued a stay of Wednesday’s planned proceedings and
gave the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office until Jan. 30 to file
opposition to the request.

Mahoney says Police Academy Whatever is Good to Go! Children weep at the horror

Posted by LiveFor on November 28, 2008

Moviehole have some amazing news that everyone out there has been waiting for – a new Police Academy movie is in the works and Steve “Waiting for an Oscar” Guttenberg is going to direct it.

Though he originally planned on reprising his role as Mahoney for the film the actor said he probably won’t wear the badge again.

Guttenberg later today The Sun that “We are doing a new movie and it is going to be great fun,” adding. “A script is being written and so far it is really great, everyone from the original movies who is still around will return.”

The actor said he’s hoping Kim Cattrall and Sharon Stone can be coaxed into reprising their roles from “Police Academy” and “Police Academy IV : Citizens on Patrol”, respectively, too.

“I know Kim and Sharon have been asked but they haven’t said yes yet. It would be really great to have them onboard.”

In 2005, Producer Jerry Weintraub and Warner Bros confirmed plans for an eight “Police Academy” – one that would reunite the original cast. Weintraub had since announced that the film wouldn’t be happening though.

Who wants to see a new Police Academy? Can it work without Mahoney? Can it work with Mahoney? Do you think he has any chance of getting Kim and Sharon to star in it?
