Vincent Cassel Replaces Oscar Isaac In Ariel Kleiman's PARTISAN
Ariel Kleiman's much-anticipated debut feature Partisan just got all shook up, with the news that Vincent Cassel has replaced Oscar Isaac in the lead role.
A bunch of synopses have floated around about the film, and the news from Screen Daily gives us yet another, more detailed, version of the story.
Cassel will play a charismatic and troubled man called Gregori, who has raised a communal family within the world of his lavish compound. The story is told through the eyes of 11-year-old Alexander who starts to question Gregori's deadly teachings.
Kleiman's short film Deeper Than Yesterday - made as his graduate film at the Victorian College of the Arts - was one of the most impressive student shorts of the past five years.
Partisan will shoot in Australia in October. Cassel, we will welcome you.
