Trailer Debuts for Roman Polanski's The Ghost Writer
01.14.10 by REELZ
Delayed a bit by the director's own headline-grabbing legal difficulties, the first full trailer is now out for Roman Polanski's The Ghost Writer. The movie is adapted from the Robert Harris political thriller about a writer (Ewan McGregor) hired to help a former British Prime Minister (played by Pierce Brosnan and clearly modeled on Tony Blair) with his memoirs. The previous ghost writer died under mysterious circumstances, and intrigue swirls as the new ghost stumbles onto some potentially damaging secrets about the PM's connection to torture and the CIA.
The movie has secured a limited release in theaters on February 19. As for the director, prospects are still not so clear.
