With the filming of An Enemy approaching (22 May in Toronto), we have some more cast for what director Denis Villebeuve describes as an 'erotic thriller'. Jake's lover will be played by Melanie Laurent but cast also includes Isabella Rossellini and Sarah Gadon.
'Niv Fichman, founding partner of Rhombus Media, said: “If ever there was a dream team assembled to make a movie, this is it. From a stellar cast to the greatest production team, led by one of the world’s most intriguing directors. And we’re all thrilled to be working with Pathé, whose consistent guidance and support followed Denis’ vision at every step.” Cameron McCracken, MD of Pathé UK, added: “At first sight, Javier’s brilliant script is a straight thriller. But as he starts peeling back the layers, it becomes a far more sophisticated, thought-provoking entertainment. Niv’s choice of Denis to master this material is inspired – we look forward to a great partnership”. '
Remembering how years ago Jake and Maggie were featured in an interview with New Yorker (2002) and were gobsmacked when Isabella Rossellini walked into the restaurant (arguing about the spelling of her name), it seems wonderful that she will be starring with Jake in An Enemy.
Thanks to IHJ for the fantastic picture.
