Polanski casts Winslet, Waltz and Foster
Saturday 25 September 2010
Director Roman Polanski's next film,
God of Carnage, will star three Oscar winners -Jodie Foster, Kate Winslet and Christoph Waltz.
The filmed adaptation of French playwright Yasmina Reza's Tony Award-winning play tells the story of two sets of parents who meet after their sons are involved in a fight. The meeting takes a turn with attacks on each other's parenting and then assaults against the marriages.
The Broadway version starred James Gandolfini, Jeff Daniels, Marcia Gay Harden, and Hope Davis and closed last June.
Originally reported by Hollywood blog Deadline, the second male lead is rumored to be Matt Dillon.
Waltz ( Inglourious Basterds) stars next in The Green Hornet with Seth Rogen and Water for Elephants co-starring Robert Pattinson. Winslet stars in the upcoming HBO miniseries Mildred Pierce, a remake of the 1945 film, and with Hugh Jackman in Untitled Comedy. Foster stars in and directs The Beaver with Mel Gibson, which currently does not have a release date.
Production on God of Carnage is scheduled for Paris beginning in February.
