Roman Polanski has been tapped to direct a screen adaption of Yasmina Reza's God of Carnage starring an all-star cast of Jodie Foster, Kate Winslet, Matt Dillon and Christoph Waltz. Can somebody just hand them the Oscars in all the acting and directing categories now? Unbeatable. Perhaps with a bit of CGI and a wig, I too can play one of the children in the film?
The play which is set in Brooklyn but to be filmed in Paris due to Polanski's never-ending legal problems in the U.S., is about two couples whose children get into a fight at a park. They decide to meet-up to discuss the matter like adults but soon find themselves engaging in a heated battle, not unlike their children. God of Carnage garnered three Tony Awards based on its brief Broadway run mid-2009 and originally starred James Gandolfini, Marcia Gay-Harden, Hope Davis and Jeff Daniels. Filming begins for Polanski's adaption early 2011.
