Premise: In this romantic thriller set in 19th century Paris, Therese Raquin (Winslet) has an affair with the best friend of her much older husband, which leads to...murder. Soon enough, the ghost rises up to haunt the murderers, leading to psychological terror and torment.

Filming: Production on this movie will start in the fall of 2000 [it is scheduled for Spring 2001] with filming being done in London and Paris. (Note: It was slated to start in April, 2000 but is being postponed while Ms. Winslet is having her first baby).

Greg's Preview Thoughts: The continuing success of films with supernatural themes continues to inspire new projects, and in this case, it is the revival of an Emile Zola novel that has been adapted several times in the past.
