The first provocative image from Brian De Palma‘s new film Passion starring Noomi Rapace and Rachel McAdams has been released. The image, which can be seen above, features a steamy scene between our two lead actresses as well as some interesting visual juxtaposition.
Passion is based on the Alain Corneau’s 2010 French film Love Crime which starred Ludivine Sagnier and Kristin Scott-Thomas, it will also mark De Palma’s first time stepping behind the camera since 2007. From what we know about it so far, it looks like it will be a sexually charged thriller with some brave performances.

But when Isabelle falls into bed with one of Christine’s lovers, war breaks out. On the night of the murder, Isabelle is at the ballet, while Christine receives an invitation to seduction. From whom? Christine loves surprises. Naked she goes to meet the mystery lover waiting in her bedroom…”
