‘Bel Ami’ to receive possible Winter 2011 release date.. or…?
December 2011?! Say.. what?!
The Bodice-Busting Ticket
Directors Nick Ormerod and Declan Donnellan’s decadent adaptation of Maupassant’s 19th-Century tale of a social-climbing journo seducing his way through Parisian society may be a provocative gamble. Firstly, it’s not in French – something Marion Cotillard was bemused by when Robert Pattinson, cast as the salacious scribe, asked her to read the script. “Why make Bel Ami in English?” she asked. Secondly, can the teen vamp do justice to one of literature’s greatest cads? But with a cast of classy bedfellows (Uma Thurman, Christina Ricci, Kristin Scott Thomas and Holliday Grainger), plenty of nudity and top-drawer production design, Bel Ami could be the steam to warm up the winter. Ooh la la!
Umm… I hope to God this was a typo on the editor’s fault, sorry… I just can’t wait until 2011. Can you?!
