TORONTO - Canadian distributor Entertainment One has acquired the North American rights to Brian De Palma’s Passion from SBS Productions.

Passion portrays a deadly power struggle between two women in the dog-eat-dog world of international business.

“Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace performances are captivating and De Palma delivers another great thriller that audiences have already embraced at Venice and Toronto,” David Reckziegel, president of eOne Films North America, said Friday.

The deal was negotiated by ICM Partners along with SBS Productions’ Saïd Ben Saïd and Sejin Croninger, and Reckziegel for Entertainment One.
