Christoph Waltz linked to thriller “True Crimes”

by June 7, 2013 About Christoph Waltz

According to an exclusive article from The Hollywood Reporter, Mr. Waltz is to star in an European thriller titled “True Crimes”. (Do not confuse it with Clint Eastwood’s movie True Crime from 1999).
The story is set in Poland and tells us the story of a “cold case” of murder. After giving the police much of frustration, a case of murder is brought back into investigation when a novel is released that describes the unsolved case in detail – only the true killer could know all that. What seemed like a ‘perfect crime’ could now be solved. The movie is based on the real case of Krystian Bala, a Polish author who was convicted of murder in 2007.
Mr. Waltz is set to play Jacek Wroblewski, the police officer who reopens the case. So he might play a protagonist again.
According to THR, the movie will take our cop down to “the dark underworld of Poland’s sex rings, prostitution and drugs”.

So far, there is no director attached to the project yet. Rumour it has that Roman Polanski might sign up for it.
Speculations also go into the direction of the likes of Niels Arden Oplev, the director of the original Swedish The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo movie.

There is no filming date for the European movie project yet. It is produced by Brett Ratner and David Gerson.

At this early stage of the project, we can only speculate when it becomes reality.

Polanski would be perfect. My second choice would be David Fincher directing. Otherwise – what would Tom Tykwer create? Anyway, great news!

Exiting! I was wondering if CW was ever going to work in Europe again. And it has to be a plot with an interesting twist and an interesting director like Roman Polanski or Niels Arden Oplev (Dane like me 🙂 – in order to be different from Tatort, Rex and so on. Looking forward to seeing it.

I can’t say I’m as interested in this project as I am Zero Theorem and Big Eyes (the quirky films usually get my attention), but the work that’s coming his way lately is incredible. I can’t believe how much he’s accomplished in 3 short years. Of course, it’s been a long time in the making!
