Oscar-Winning Filmmaker Roman Polanski Directing The Ghost


Roman Polanski


The man is also on board to pen the script alongside Robert Harris, author of the book which the political thriller is based on.

Recently ditching his helming duties on "Pompeii", Roman Polanski turns out to have taken a new big screen title as his next directing gig. Report from Variety has stated that the Paris-born filmmaker is set to work on a political thriller feature titled "The Ghost."

Based on Robert Harris' recently-published novel of the same name, project concerns a ghostwriter who is hired to complete the memoirs of a former British prime minister and uncovers secrets that put his own life in jeopardy. The author is said to also come on board helping Polanski adapting the book to a screenplay.

"I have been looking for a political thriller to direct for some time, and 'The Ghost' could not be more perfect," Polanski remarked. "Robert has constructed a novel with such suspense, it is hard to put it down."

Production is scheduled to start in Europe next fall with Robert Benmussa and Alain Sarde both producing for Summit International. The twosome are no stranger to Polanski for they previously were the ones backing up his works of "The Pianist" and "Oliver Twist."
