(ANI): Incarcerated filmmaker Roman Polanski is completing his
latest movie The Ghost in jail, his friend Robert Harris has
revealed. The 76-year-old has been behind bars in Zurich,
Switzerland since 26 September (09), when he was detained in
connection to a 1977 child sex crime.
However, Harris, who penned the screenplay of the film, insists
that Polanski has come up with a way to finalise his next film
ahead of its scheduled premiere at the Germany's Berlin Film
Festival in February (10). Polanski, who completed the editing of
the film on the day of his arrest, is keeping in touch with his
colleagues for help and has even passed on instructions for the
musical score to composer Alexandre Desplat from jail.
"He can make his wishes known from his cell. I don't think he
can make phone calls, but he can communicate," Contactmusic quoted
Harris as saying. However, the author fears that the movie film
will be lost in the controversy surrounding Polanski.
"What people think of the film is another matter. Whether the
film can rise above the circumstances in which the director now
finds himself I don't know. We will test to the upper limits the
notion that there's no such thing as bad publicity," he said.
In the film, Pierce Brosnan plays the role British prime
minister accused of war crimes in The Ghost, which also has Ewan
MCGregor and Kim Cattrall.
