Isaac Kills For Love In Therese Raquin

March 26, 2012

Oscar Isaac has signed up to star in the upcoming thriller Therese Raquin says Deadline.

Set in 1867 Paris, the film is an adaptation of Émile Zola‘s classic novel and stage play. The story revolves around a young woman named Therese (Elizabeth Olsen) forced into an arranged marriage with her sickly first cousin Camille (Tom Felton). She soon begins a turbulent affair with Laurent (Isaac), a friend of her husband, and the pair plot to murder Camille. They succeed, but the couple is soon haunted by the ghost of the dead husband – ultimately poisoning their love into a hatred of each other.

Jessica Lange plays Madame Raquin, Therese’s aunt and Camille’s mother–taking over for
Glenn Close who was tipped for the part last month.

Charlie Stratton wrote the adapted script and will direct the film as a “dark and erotic thriller“.

Mickey Liddell and William Horberg produce the film that starts production later this Spring

Isaac just wrapped the folk music drama Inside Llewyn Davis. He next stars in the actioner The Bourne Legacy, and the ensemble pic Ten Year,  Isaac was good in Drive and I think he will only get better as his career continues.
