Noomi Rapace’s erotic thriller Passion will be released in the United States this summer…
Entertainment One had previously acquired the North American rights to Brian De Palma’s film, which stars the 33-year-old half-Spanish actress and Rachel McAdams in December. And, now the company has announced plans to release Passion in theaters and via video on demand (VOD) in August.
The film, which played in competition at the Venice Film Festival and screened at the Toronto Film Festival, centers on a deadly power struggle between two rising executives in the dog-eat-dog world of a multinational corporation.
De Palma wrote and directed the remake of the 2010 French film Love Crime (from Alain Corneau’s original screenplay).
Passion will hit theaters on August 30 and be available via VOD on August 1.
