Roman Polanski to be moved to house arrest Friday afternoon

Posted on

Film director Roman Polanski, who was arrested in September this year for a 1978 statutory rape incident, will be moved on Friday afternoon from his Swiss jail to his chalet in Gstaad, a village in southwestern Switzerland, reports the BBC. The Chinatown director, who collected the $4.5 million bail the Swiss government ordered for his release from jail, will be transferred on Friday and monitored thereafter using an electronic bracelet. Meanwhile, Polanski’s completed film The Ghost is still on track to appear at the Berlin International Film Festival in February, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
