Rachel Weisz reunites with Fernando Mierelles for the sex drama 360

A movie about sex is likely going get most of us to pay attention. Add to that, the knowledge that the very talented Fernando Mierelles (THE CONSTANT GARDENER, CITY OF GOD) will be at the helm and that the supremely lovely Rachel Weisz (THE WHISTLEBLOWER, THE BROTHERS BLOOM) will be starring, and, well... boners!

Variety is reporting that Weisz has signed on to star for her CONSTANT GARDENER director's upcoming drama 360, a film we first reported on back in June.

Here's the skinny on the film from that earlier report: "360 examines sexual morals within and between social classes, using various pairs of characters who have sexual encounters in and outside of their social classes. Morgan’s inspiration is Reigen, the play by Austrian author/playwright Arthur Schnitzler. Originally published in 1900, the play was scandalous when first made public. It has since been turned into several films that include the 1950 French language drama La Ronde. Dor Film is also producing 360, a contemporized version of Schnitzler's work."

No word yet on when 360 will go into production, but as a big fan of Mierelles and Weisz, the film is already one I'm very anxious to see.
Extra Tidbit: 360 comes from a Peter Morgan script. That guy's name has been practically everywhere of late: Clint Eastwood's supernatural drama HEREAFTER, Tomas Alfredson's spy flick TINKER, TAILOR, SOLIDER, SPY, the Sacha Baron Cohen/Freddie Mercury joint, and even the latest (but currently dead) Bond film.
