The key crew includes Oscar-winning music composer Alexandre Desplat, along with Polanski’s regular cinematographer Pawel Edelman, who previously worked with Polanski on “An Officer and a Spy,” “The Pianist,” “Oliver Twist” and “The Ghost Writer,” as well as set designer Monica Sironi (“Volare”).“The Palace” is produced by Luca Barbareschi at Eliseo Entertainment company, and co-produced by CAB Productions in Switzerland and Lucky Bob in Poland.Penned by Polanski and Jerzy Skolimowski, the movie takes place at a palace in Gstaad on New Year’s Eve in 1999.
Mickey Rourke dubs working with disgraced director Roman Polanski ‘a real privilege’: ‘I can’t wait to do another film with him’
Mickey Rourke has shared a post on Instagram gushing over disgraced film director Roman Polanski, saying it was a ‘great pleasure’ to work with him and admitting he ‘can’t wait’ to collaborate again.In 1977, Polanski – known for creating films including The Pianist, The Ghost Writer and Tess – was arrested and charged with drugging and raping a 13-year-old girl.He pleaded guilty at the time to the lesser charge of unlawful sex with a minor, but before he could be sentenced in the US, he fled to Paris, and remains a fugitive in accordance with the US criminal justice system.Despite his conviction and several more women accusing him of sexual assault, Polanski has continued to create films and receive awards, receiving the best director and best adaptation gongs at the 2019 César Awards for An Officer and a Spy.On Thursday evening, Rourke, whose previous roles include appearing in Once Upon A Time in Mexico and Man on Fire, shared a picture on Instagram of himself sitting in a chair while appearing to light up a cigarette at the end of the day while working on a project with Polanski.‘End of the day, once again, a great pleasure to work with legendary and talented Roman Polanski. Working with such a director I feel is a great privilege his film has such integrity, style, class and unpredictability,’ he wrote in the caption.Rourke, 69, said that working with Polanski, 88, who has been in the film industry for several decades, allowed him to ‘always learn something new’.‘I usually do not have conversations with most directors but Roman Polanski is not just another director.
