Words of wisdom for anyone who should ever start up their own movie website: any story that has potential for a dirty title is always worth writing. Which brings me to the fact that Rachel Weisz has been tapped to star in an independent political drama called The Whistleblower.
According to Variety, the film will be based on a true story that follows the trials of a female cop from Nebraska who serves as a peacekeeper in a post-war Bosnia and exposes a United Nations cover-up of a sex trafficking scandal. Larysa Kondracki — whose short film Viko recently debuted at the Newport Beach Film Festival — will make her feature film debut with a script that she co-wrote with Ellis Kirwin.
If this film follows suit with Kondracki’s work on Viko, I would estimate that it could be a very dark, haunting sort of film. And Rachel Weisz, as you know, is a damn fine actress. Consider this reporter an interested party.
