Polanski’s The Ghost Writer Gets a Release Date, German-Language Trailer


Summit Entertainment announced a February 19 release date today for The Ghost Writer, the latest joint from house-arrested auteur Roman Polanski, completed on location in his adorable Swiss chalet. And if this and Switzerland's soon-forthcoming decision about Polanski's possible extradition to the U.S. weren't exciting enough, the film has a brand-new German-language trailer! Ghost stars Ewan McGregor as a guy helping Pierce Brosnan, a recently ousted British Prime Minister, write his memoirs. In this masterfully dubbed footage, characters take baths, run away from things, and get accused of war crimes. Also featured: Kim Cattrall and lots of angry whispering. Looks good to us.
