Brilliant director/horrible person Roman Polanski is hoping to shoot his next feature in Poland, but has asked for assurances from the Polish government that he will not extradited to the U.S. for the 1977 rape of a 13-year-old girl. Polanski’s next film is a biopic about Alfred Dreyfus, a 19th-century French Jewish military officer accused of crime he did not commit… unlike Polanski who totally did rape a 13-year-old girl and fled the United States to avoid prosecution. The film is gearing up to be another Polanski masterpiece and will certainly be praised by critics and movie-goers alike, except for the critics and movie-goers who can’t get past the fact that the dude DRUGGED AND RAPED A 13-YEAR-OLD GIRL!!! THE F*CK IS WRONG WITH EVERYONE!?
Here is what the Hollywood Reporter is saying about Polanski’s demands…
Polanski, who has rented an apartment in Krakow and opened a Polish bank account in preparation for shooting the Dreyfus film, wants official guarantees on his legal security before committing to do the project in Poland.
Polanski, who is understood to have remained in Krakow for a vacation after location scouting, has, according to the Polish Film Institute, instructed his lawyers to make it clear that if Poland wants to attract the $40 million project and its cast of top British and Hollywood actors, his security, particularly as it relates to any possible U.S. extradition request, must be guaranteed.
Of course Poland will comply with his demands, because $40 million plus celebs.
I think it’s time we send Seal Team 6 on this guy. I understand that would break international law and that we are supposed to save those abuses of sovereignty for extracting terrorists, but if President Obama executed a black-ops mission to swoop Polanski out of his director’s chair in Poland and drop him in Rikers Island, would anybody really bat an eye? Hell no! That would be a great day for America. We’d all party like it was May 2nd, 2011. I’m sure there are some people in the world of film who might be bummed, but I feel like they’d quickly get over it once they were reminded that ROMAN POLANSKI DRUGGED AND RAPED A CHILD! HAS THE WHOLE WORLD GONE CRAZY? AM I THE ONLY ONE AROUND HERE WHO GIVES A SHIT ABOUT THE RULES!?!Subscribe to UPROXX
