Find: What did Depardieu do on an airplane that
The French businessman was forced to step down as the IMF's chief last year after he was caught up in a hotel rape scandal. Charges against him were dropped, but the fallout cost him his job and his marriage.
Adjani recently told French publication Journal de Dimanche the film, to be
directed by Abel Ferrara, will be hard hitting, revealing, "It should be
fascinating because we have a director who isn't French in charge and he's going
to go where it hurts... With him, there's no risk of being politically correct."
And newswoman Sinclair is delighted with the casting. She tells local paper Le Parisien she's a big fan of Adjani's 1988 movie "Camille Claudel," in which the actress starred opposite Depardieu.
Sinclair tells the newspaper, "I like that woman a lot."
And Depardieu insists he won't be holding back anything as the disgraced businessman Strauss-Kahn - because he found him to be "arrogant" throughout the rape scandal. Announcing the casting earlier this year, the actor said, "Because I don't like him I'm going to do it."
What an exquisite choice to portray the defrocked, disgraced, discombobulated ex-head of the International Monetary Fund! Like Strauss-Kahn, Depardieu is overweight, arrogant, and semi-
senile. Isabelle Adjani is also beyond reproach for the sub-lead role of Strauss-Kahn's ex-wife (how lucky can a woman get?). Adjani is one classy lady, and will do the ex-wife proud.
But here's the kicker: who gets to play the slutty hotel maid that violates Kahn-Strauss? I'm no casting couch jockey but I'll go with the foxy lawyer/commentator on Fox News who was married to the former San Francisco mayor what's-his-name. She can scrub out my toilet any time.
