Rachel Weisz will be reuniting with City of God's Fernando Meirelles for his latest film, 360. The pair, who worked on The Constant Gardener together, will re-team for a drama that involves lots of sex and promiscuity. Huzzah.
Written by Peter Morgan, 360 is based on an Austrian play called Reigen, which show a series of couples doing the naughty, each one following on from the main two characters' previous encounters. Eventually, the love comes full circle. As it were.
The original play inspired a French film called La Ronde in 1950. That earned itself two Oscar nominations (Best Writing and Best Art Direction - read "vaseline"). So if The Queen's screenwriter is working with Fernando Meirelles, the Constant Gardener director who got Rachel Weisz her Best Supporting Actor gong, then this could be the most awards-friendly sex film of the year. That and Piranha 3D.
BBC Films are putting up the funds along with Austrian TV channel ORF. Now we're just waiting to see who it is Rachel Weisz will be sleeping with.
