Rachel Weisz to star in the sex drama 360 for director Fernando Meirelles
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
THE CONSTANT GARDNER was a great film, so it’s with much excitement that I report that film’s star, Rachel Weisz and director, Fernando Meirelles, are going to be reuniting for the erotic thriller 360. The film is based on the old French play by Arthur Schnitzler ‘Reigen’ that actually inspired the French drama LA RONDE, among many other films and plays, including Stanley Kubrick’s EYES WIDE SHUT. The film will follow a few pairs of couples and their sexual encounters. Peter Morgan will be writing the screenplay.
Obviously, there are a lot of different ways Meirelles can take this story, but I’m hoping he does something new and original with it. Erotic thrillers are a rarity these days and good erotic thrillers are even harder to find. But Rachel Weisz is one of the few actresses that consistently gives great performances, so he has the right leading lady.
