Roman Polanski has cast Nicholas Cage, Tilda Swinton, and Pierce Brosnan, for his next film “The Ghost,” an adaptation of a political thriller by Robert Harris.
The film is about a ghostwriter (Nicholas Cage) hired to finish the memoirs of a former British prime minister (Pierce Brosnan), after the first writer turned up dead. The ghostwriter leads him to find skeleton’s in the prime ministers closet that put his life in danger (what political figure doesn’t have skeletons in the closet?)
The prime ministers wife (Tilda Swinton) falls for the ghostwriter.
The film will begin lensing in Europe this September.
