The likes of Sienna Miller, Steve Buscemi, Tony Shalhoub and Patricia Clarkson are all teaming up to star in the U.S. remakes of two films by slain Dutch director Theo van Gogh. Their publicist confirmed this on Thursday Dec 15.
Shalhoub and Clarkson, the two are set to star in the US reworking of Van Gogh's 1996 film "Blind Date." In the film which Stanley Tucci going to produce, the twosome will portray a married couple who very tragically lost their child in a car accident. Since the child's death they've been unable to spend time together, and they can't not be together, so they sort of meet on blind dates and role-play as strangers.
In the meantime, Sienna Miller and Steve Buscemi have been proposed to star in the US version of Van Gogh's 2003 movie "Interview." Buscemi will play a top political journalist whose career is fading. First, he has a falling out with his editor, and then, against his will, he has to interview the country's most popular soap actress, the role of which played by Miller.
