Screen Daily has a report on a couple of flicks Memento Films is bringing to this year’s Berlin Film Festival. First up is The Woman in the Fifth, a supernatural thriller from Pawel Pawlikowski (My Summer of Love) starring Ethan Hawke and Kristen Scott Thomas. The film is based on Douglas Kennedy’s novel about an American writer (Hawke) in Paris who embarks on an affair with an elegant and mysterious widow and who might have something to do with the murders that start taking place around him. Might have something to do? Elegant and mysterious widows are always responsible for surrounding murders. Everyone knows that.
Hit the jump for news about Hello Darkness which is another ANOTHER vampire film. Oh goodie.
Memento is trying to put the cast together for Hello Darkness, yet another vampire story (we need Buffy Summers more now than ever) with Dominic Cooper, Julie Christie, and Imogen Poots in talks to star. Cooper would play “a tough, handsome, working class vampire who cruises the pubs of Newcastle on a Saturday night to feed on drunken young women, then returns to his faithful aging hemophiliac wife (Christie). But his status quo changes when he falls in love with an upper-class science student (Poots). That sounds like three different movies but you can’t fight the vampire wave so it’s best to just cross your fingers but not in the shape of a crucifix.
