Gabriel Byrne will likely next star in "I Anna,” the movie of a book about a cop and a femme fatale who is a suspect in a brutal murder.
Byrne's character, Detective Chief Inspector Bernie Kominski, is described as “an insomniac dazed by the prospect of divorce,” who will pursue Anna Welles, a femme fatale suspect in a brutal murder. Filming locations are in London.
Byrne and Charlotte Rampling reportedly filmed a scene together earlier this month, according to a Byrne fan site Byrneholics. The book was first published in New York by The Mysterious Press in 1984 and republished in the UK by Serpent’s Tail in 1990.
The author, Elsa Lewin, is a psychoanalyst in New York.
Embargo films is currently closing the financing needed to make the film, and the producer is Barnaby Southcombe, son of Charlotte Rampling.
Byrne is no stranger to crime movies such as “The Usual Suspects” and “Miller's Crossings.”
Rampling is probably best known for her role opposite Paul Newman in “The Verdict.”
