Roman Polanski's next will be an adaptation of Venus in Fur

Sep. 20, 2012by: Niki Stephens

Roman Polanski's next will be a story from the stage.

Polanski is doing an adaptation of VENUS IN FUR, a dark erotic comedy based on the Broadway play from David Ives. The story centers on, "Vanda, a seemingly nave and desperate actress trying to win over the aloof show director." The leading roles have been played by Nina Arianda and Hugh Dancy. In the first run off-broadway, Wes Bentley was the original male lead. Arianda won a Tony last year for her performance as Vanda. Neither Arianda nor Dancy will be reprising their roles for the big screen version.

Polanski has cast his wife, Emmanuelle Seigner, and Louis Garrel in the actress and director roles. Polanski has been waiting for the right material to come along so he could direct his wife in a role, "Ive been looking for a chance to make a film in French with Emmanuelle for a long time. Reading Venus in Fur, I realized the moment had arrived. Polanski has not seen the Broadway adaptation.

VENUS IN FUR will start this November in Paris.

One of my favorite directors

The quality of someone's work is not dictated by their actions. Any money spent to see a Polanski film isn't going into his personal rape fund. I can't wait to see this movie.

Sorry, I don't watch films made by assholes who fuck young girls, plead guilty and then bitch out and run away to Europe. I'm sorry about his childhood in Poland and I'm sorry he lost his pregnant wife to psychopaths, but he needs to come back home and serve his time like a grown man.

The guy's now pushing 80. I'd say it hardly matters at this point. Besides, having to live in France (and not the good part, i.e. the South) for over 30 years would be punishment enough for me. : P
