    ROMAN POLANSKI TAKEN INTO CUSTODY, GHOST IN LIMBO


    Last Saturday, while arriving at Zurich, where he will be accepting his lifetime achievement at the Zurich Film Festival, Polanski was taken into the police custody. The ghost of the 32 years-old accusation has haunted him again. Following the custody, it may be imminent that Polanski may be extradited to the United States.

    For 32 years, Roman Polanski had been a fugitive, when he was first accused and convicted of having sex with a minor, then 13-year-old Samantha Gailey (now Samantha Geimer). Sparkled with great media rife, Polanski fled to France where he is the citizen. Like many countries, France refused to extradite Polanski to US. During these fugitive years, Polanski worked in France and had spawned several great achievements and movies, while he also carefully avoiding visiting countries that were likely to extradite him.

    Following his arrest, his latest movie venture, The Ghost, a political thriller starring Pierce Brosnan and Ewan McGregor may plunge into doubts. Variety reported that the shooting has completed but sound mixing and sound scoring have yet to be completed, leaving the postproduction in limbo.

    The Ghost is Polanski’s first feature film since 2005’s Oliver Twist. The Ghost tells a Blair-like PM’s ghostwriter (Ewan McGregor) who stumbles on a secret that threatens his life.
