H'Wood Reporter: Buscemi, Shalhoub set for Van Gogh remakes

Sienna Miller, Steve Buscemi, Tony Shalhoub and Patricia Clarkson will star in U.S. remakes of two films by slain Dutch director Theo van Gogh, their producers said Thursday. Shalhoub and Clarkson will star in Stanley Tucci‘s “Blind Date” as a couple trying to repair their shattered lives and rebuild their relationship after their child passes away. In Buscemi’s “Interview,” the actor-director plays a faltering political journalist reduced to interviewing one of the country’s top soap opera actresses (Miller). The late Van Gogh, a distant relative of the famed impressionist artist, was killed in November 2004 by Islamic radical Mohammed Bouyeri, who confessed to the Amsterdam slaying and was sentenced to life in prison. His murder followed the televised airing of his short film “Submission,” which portrayed violence against women in Islamic societies. Gregg Goldstein reports.
