Ratner does Polanski

It's strange that we haven't already posted about Roman Polanski's recent arrest. The Swiss police finally captured Polanski who had been on the run since 1977 after apparently raping and drugging a 13 year old girl at the home of Jack Nicholson.

Now that we've got that out of the way, Brett Ratner is producing a sequel to WANTED AND DESIRED, which talked about the case in meticulous detail. Ratner says that Polanski never saw the original, "Roman had nothing to do with that movie. He didn’t even see the movie. Marina (Zenovich) screened the movie at my house. And I invited Roman’s friends. Like Bob Evans and Warren Beatty. A bunch of his friends came to see the movie before Roman even saw it. Because he didn’t want to sway anyone’s opinion. He wanted it to be an honest depiction of what happened."

Marina asked Ratner to produce the film with Polanski possibly appearing in the project. “Because now it’s really more about the outcome of what’s happened since, Roman has agreed to participate," says Ratner. This of course is to be determined depending upon if the director is free to do so or not.

We also just found out that filmmakers: Woody Allen, Pedro Almodovar and Martin Scorsese are amongst many who are demanding the release of Polanski. There was 138 people in the film industry who signed a petition against his arrest. "The arrest of Roman Polanski in a neutral country, where he assumed he could travel without hindrance ... opens the way for actions of which no one can know the effects," reads the document that Monica Bellucci, Tilda Swinton, directors David Lynch, Jonathan Demme, John Landis, and many more signed.
