August to helm first Hollywood pic

Gere, Moore sign up for lead roles

COPENHAGEN — Richard Gere and Julianne Moore will play the leads in Danish director Bille August’s first Hollywood film, “Without Apparent Motive”, which will start principal photography mid-January 2003.

“Both Gere and Moore have now been confirmed for the lead roles,” Karin Trolle, head of August’s Copenhagen office, told Daily Variety.

David Glasser will produce the thriller in the “LA Confidential” vein. Penned by Eric Blakeley for Splendid Pictures, pic is August’s first feature since his award-winning Swedish chamber play, “A Song for Martin,” two years ago.

Although credited with high-budget films such as “House of the Spirits,” “Smilla’s Sense of Snow” and “Les Miserables,” the Oscar-winning director has never worked in the U.S.

In the film Gere plays a police detective, who investigates the murders of three businessmen. He falls in love with Moore, the widow of one of them, but then realizes she might be behind the crimes.
