About Those Rumors On A Strauss-Kahn Film

Written by: FFT Webmaster | January 13th, 2012

Rumors have been spreading for the past several weeks that the iconoclastic American film director Abel Ferrara is developing a project about the French political and former International Monetary Fund head Dominique Strauss-Kahn, whose sexual assault of an immigrant hotel housekeeper in New York was one of the year’s juiciest scandals. French superstars Gerard Depardieu and Isabelle Adjani were said to be attached, with the production coin to come from French-based sales company Wild Bunch. However, Vincent Maraval, the company head, has denied the story to the French press. “There is no project of this kind in production,” Maraval told a French newspaper. “Abel Ferarra is currently writing a script about politics, the weakness of today’s politician, who is at the same time all-powerful and lost, miserable in his personal life…..a little bit of Clinton, a little bit of Berlusconi and a little bit of DSK in the script.”
