Brian De Palma is back in kinky "Femme Fatale" mode with his latest, "Passion," which pairs Rachel McAdams with Noomi Rapace for a loose remake of Alain Corneaus's final film, "Love Crime," which starred Kristin Scott-Thomas and Ludivine Sagnier. Ahead of the thriller's premiere in Venice (it hits Toronto soon after and then New York), the debut trailer for his first film since 2007's "Redacted" has made its way online, and it's a suitably sleazy and highly stylized affair. READ MORE: Ludivine Sagnier on Impersonating the Late Alain Corneau in "Love Crime" Like "Love Crime," "Passion" centers on a driven ingenue (Rapace) at a multinational who engages in a deadly battle with her ruthless mentor (McAdams). Think of it as a sordid mash-up of "Working Girl" and "Fatal Attraction," with a twist to rival the best potboilers. Judging by the trailer, De Palma has put his own stamp on the material by upping the sex quotient and camp factor. If anything, "Passion" looks to be one of the guilty pleasures of the Fall festival season. The film is still without a distributor.
