Digg Button  
Josh Hartnett keeps flexing his acting muscles for movie audiences by appearing in a variety of roles. He has been very successful in the past and this film should be no exception. This time he takes on the psychological thriller genre in this remake of the 1996 French film L'Appartement, which won Best Foreign film awards from both the British Academy Awards and the British Independent Film Awards.

Hartnett plays Matthew, a Chicago investment banker whose true love mysteriously vanishes. Matthew decides to leave the city and start anew. Two years pass and Matthew has moved on with his life (or so he thinks). Back in town, he catches a fleeting glimpse of a woman he believes to be his long-lost love. He begins an obsessive campaign to track down this woman, who must be his former love, and find out what really happened to her. Of course, his actions send him down a dark and dangerous path that could lead to self-destruction.

Production started on December 16th, 2002 in Montreal and Chicago on a budget of $30 million and wrapped early in 2003. This was after a couple false starts that were planned for January and October of 2002. It was originally titled Obsessed (for obvious reasons), but was changed to Wicker Park. On a cast note, Josh Hartnett’s role was originally offered to Brendan Fraser and Freddie Prinze, Jr., who both declined. (Marty Doskins/BOP)
