Director Abel Ferrara and screenwriter Christ Zois are currently developing the project, and have met with Dominique Strauss-Kahn and his wife, Anne Sinclair. Here's what Wild Bunch head Vincent Maraval had to say about the project.
"One thing we do know is that there's a real common desire amongst Depardieu, Adjani and Ferrara to work together. But like every day in this business, we have to see if there's a film there. Today, the only reality is that they are writing something inspired by Strauss-Kahn that will focus on addiction and politicians. It's more that than the Strauss-Kahn scandal itself. If it becomes a serious thing, I'm not even sure it will be the same film with Adjani and Depardieu. If we feel there's a movie, we'll go further."
Back in May, Nafissatou Diallo, a 32-year-old hotel maid accused Dominique Strauss-Kahn of sexually assaulting her in a New York City hotel room. The case was dismissed against Strauss-Kahn, the managing director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), due to credibility issues surrounding Diallo.
The project is said to be in the early stages of development, and no production schedule was released.
