With Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace already set to star Brian De Palma‘s return to the genre he revived in the 70s and 80s, Passion, a loose retelling of the French film Love Crime, has added Dominic Cooper and Karoline Herfurth to its cast. The thriller will concern a cunning boss and her seemingly naive assistant. When the boss steals her assistant’s idea, the young woman plans murder. [Media Biz via The Playlist]
There’s no word yet on who Cooper and Herfurth will play in the film. Cooper made waves last year with his over-the-top performance in The Devil’s Double, not to mention strong supporting turns in everything from An Education to Captain America: The First Avenger.
Herfurth has been around overseas for some time, appearing in only a few American imports, including Perfume: The Story of a Murderer and The Reader. This should increase her notoriety in the States a bit.
Passion begins production next month in Berlin.
