The international trailer for Roman Polanski’s latest film, The Ghost Writer, has hit the Internet. Translation: Don’t mind the French subtitles. Ewan McGregor plays a writer helping a former British prime minister (Pierce Brosnan, acting quite the badass) complete his memoir — if what he uncovers doesn’t get him killed. Kim Cattrall appears to have a role that will require her to have zero sex. Fascinating!
One word of advice: If you try to YouTube this trailer, be sure to type in the full title. If you just type “Ghost Writer trailer”, you could end up with the preview for a film directed by Alan Cumming, starring him as a music teacher who takes in and apparently murders a street hustler/writer (David Boreanaz), then passes off his novel as his own. You’re going to click aren’t you?
