As it became known to the information resource Deadline , director Brian de Palma will lead the shooting of the black comedy The Truth and Other Lies ( “Truth and Other Lies » *).|
The film will be based on the novel of the same name by Sasha Arango, which brought the latter an honorable European prize Prix Europeen du Polar du Point for the best literary debut. The author himself adapted the book for large screens. The new project is being produced by Steve Schwartz, Paula May Schwartz and Nick Wexler.
At the heart of the original work is a writer named Henry Hayden . After his mistress becomes pregnant, the main character runs the risk of spoiling the image of a loving spouse. Henry tries hard to get rid of the burden, but in the process makes a terrible mistake. To put the past in the past, Hayden has to constantly invent new and new lies.
“I tried to portray Henry Hayden as a product of modern society, where a person is determined not by his moral qualities, but by power and success,- noted Arango . -In the Facebook era, truth is indistinguishable from pretense, and universal acceptance replaces faith and becomes religion. ”.
Brian de Palma is known to moviegoers for his films Scarface, The Untouchables and Mission Impossible, and last year at the Venice Film Festival the director was awarded the prize for his contribution to development cinematography.
