Rachel Weisz To Star In Sex Drama ‘360’

9/21/2010 Posted by Admin

Rachel Weisz will reunite with her "Constant Gardener" director Fernando Meirelles on the psychosexual drama "360," written by  Peter Morgan.

Deadline is reporting that former Universal co-chairman David Linde is aboard as executive producer.  The drama is being produced by Austrian producer Dor Film and co-financed by BBC Films and its Austrian TV counterpart ORF Fernsehfilm.

"360" is inspired by Arthur Schnitzler’s play "Reigen," an Austrian fin-de-siècle drama which also inspired Stanley "Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut."

Schnitzler’s play has been filmed many times, including Max Ophuls' 1950 film "La Ronde." Reigen consists of short scenes between couples, shown before or after a sexual liaison. After each scene, one character from the pairing is then shown with another partner, who is then shown with another partner, and so on.

Finally, the promiscuity comes full circle.
