Noted auteur Brian De Palma is back in the saddle (I don’t think that’s a real phrase). The Scarface director has had some hits and misses throughout the years, but has built a solid filmography throughout his career (I still think Snake Eyes is highly underrated). His next feature appears to be a return to form. Per THR:
Game of Thrones star Nikolaj Coster Waldau and Mad Men star Christina Hendricks are in talks to star in veteran director Brian De Palma’s thriller Domino.
Petter Skavlan (Kon-Tiki, Sophie’s World) wrote the script for the film. The story follows a Copenhagen police officer (Coster Waldau) who is seeking justice for his partner’s murder by a mysterious man called Imran. He teams up with a fellow cop and his late partner’s mistress (Hendricks) to hunt Imran down, but they are unwittingly caught in a cat-and-mouse chase with a duplicitous CIA agent that will take them from Scandinavia to the sun-drenched landscapes of Spain.
The film is being produced by Michel Schonnemann for Schonne Film in Denmark and co-produced by Antonio Perez Perez for Maestranza in Spain and Jaqueline de Gooeij for Zilvermeer in Belgium. Backup is wrapping financing of the film, and IM Global will introduce the project to buyers in Cannes later this month. ICM, which negotiated the financing and packaged the film, will represent it for North America.
As long as we can somehow get a coked out Nicolas Cage in this thing, I’m already here for this.
