Elizabeth Olsen starrer Thérèse Raquin has a new name and an official trailer courtesy of Roadside Attractions. Now titled In Secret, the period drama stars Olsen as Thérèse, the young sexually repressed heroine of Émile Zola’s 1867 novel who finds herself trapped in a loveless marriage to her cousin Camille (Harry Potter‘s Tom Felton). When Camille’s artist pal Laurent (Oscar Isaac) comes to visit, adulterous sparks fly hurtling Thérèse down a path of obsession, love, and madness. Roadside has set a post-Valentine’s Day release for February 21, 2014:
EXCLUSIVE: Oscar Isaac has been set to star opposite Elizabeth Olsen, Jessica Lange and Tom Felton in Therese. Olsen plays the title character, who is trapped in a loveless marriage to her sickly first cousin, Camille (Felton), and living with his mother (Lange). She begins an illicit love affair with Camille’s friend Laurent, which leads to a tragic outcome for all three. Isaac will play that role. Charlie Stratton adapted the Emile Zola novel Therese Raquin, and will direct. It’s being produced and will be distributed by LD Entertainment, with William Horberg and Mickey Liddell are producing.
Though his character had an early exit in the Nic Refn-directed Drive, Isaac just played the lead in Inside Llewyn Davis, the film directed by Joel and Ethan Coen. He’ll next be seen in The Bourne Legacy, and Ten Year, which he starred in an ensemble that includes Channing Tatum and Anthony Mackie. Isaac wrote an original song and performed it in the movie, and also did the singing in the Coen brothers fllm. He’s repped by UTA, Inspire Entertainment and SMGSB.
EXCLUSIVE: After Harry Potter’s Daniel Radcliffe turned in great numbers on the CBS Films-distributed The Woman In Black, and Emma Watson readies for a re-team with David Yates in Your Voice Inside My Head for Warner Bros, what has become of that bratty Draco Malfoy, who tormented the hell out of Potter and his wand-waving mates over eight films? Tom Felton is in negotiations to star opposite Elizabeth Olsen and Glenn Close in Therese Raquin. Written and set to be helmed by acclaimed theater director Charlie Stratton, the film’s being produced by William Horberg and Mickey Liddell. Close is attached for the role of Madame Raquin, and Olsen for Therese, who, with her lover Laurent, murder her husband (Felton), a sick boy that Madame Raquin forced Therese to marry. After Therese later marries her true love, the couple is haunted by the ghost of the dead husband and it poisons their love into all-consuming hatred.
Felton, who last year finished off the Harry Potter series and had a supporting role in Rise of the Planet of the Apes, just finished production on the Tandem/Scott Free Productions TV mini Labyrinth as well as From The Rough, and The Apparition at Warner Bros. WME reps him along with Untitled and UK-based Troika.
