Summit Picks Up Roman Polanski’s Latest Film THE GHOST WRITER; TRON LEGACY to Reveal a New Image to 10 Facebook Fans

     December 11, 2009


Despite his ongoing legal drama, Roman Polanski will get his new movie The Ghost Writer out to audiences as Summit Entertainment has picked up the film for distribution.  While the film sadly does not chart Johnny Blaze’s attempts at being an author, it has a strong synopsis:

The movie thriller tells the story of a former British Prime Minister, Adam Lang (Pierce Brosnan), who is holed up on an island off the Eastern seaboard of the U.S. in midwinter, writing his memoirs.  When his long-standing aide drowns, a professional ghostwriter (Ewan McGregor) is sent out to help him finish the book.  The anonymous ghost writer is quickly drawn into a political and sexual intrigue involving Lang’s wife, Ruth (Olivia Williams) and his aide (Kim Cattrall).  Hanging over Lang is the threat of a war crimes trial and a mysterious secret from his past that threatens to jeopardize international relations.  The cast also includes Jim Belushi, Robert Pugh and Tom Wilkinson.

Summit plans to release the film in the first half of 2010.  However, I still can’t get over Jim Belushi in a Roman Polanski movie.  It just doesn’t compute.

I can, however, make some more sense out of Tron Legacy attempting to draw in more Facebook fans by offering ten lucky folks a look at a new image from the film.  While we got a sweet new image last week along with a nice teaser poster, I’m hoping that one of the ten folks who gets the new image is a fan of Collider and wouldn’t mind sharing.  Click over to the film’s official Facebook page to become a fan.  Tron Legacy hits theaters on December 17, 2010.
