But this morning, I found this. Whether they acquired the information via legal means or through kidnapping and torture isn't clear (I think it's best we don't ask), but the folks at Cineuropa have pulled together the first detailed plot summary for the movie, and it includes some encouraging wrinkles. Yes, Farrell and McGregor are brothers (who, randomly, are restoring a boat), and yes, they're drawn into a life of crime -- but apparent it's the Atwell character who does the manipulating rather than Wilkinson, or some big, hulking brute. Here's what Cineuropa has got: "When McGregor's character falls in love with [Atwell's character], she becomes aware of her power to attract the opposite sex and uses this to the point of leading the two brothers, who are in financial difficulty, into crime, and creating a dangerous rivalry between the two men." Hmm. So could this be another dark, nasty Allen flick? We can only hope.
The film is currently scheduled for a spring 2007 release, and could possibly debut at Cannes.
