No matter how you feel about Roman Polanski, it's not really debatable whether he's a talented director. Despite ongoing controversy, his latest film, The Ghost Writer, is still emerging, and this week brings us the trailer for the thriller.
Ewan McGregor plays an author who's recruited into a lucrative deal to be the ghost writer for former Prime Minister Adam Lang, played by Pierce Brosnan. When it turns out that Lang's political record is anything but squeaky clean, McGregor finds a moral dilemma in transcribing the life of the powerful man. Making matters worse is that McGregor also finds himself fearing for his life after he finds out the previous ghost writer died (suicide? murder?) while on the job. The trailer's extremely engaging, and the movie itself looks stylish and fast-paced (be sure to listen up for Kim Cattrall sporting a British accent).
