Stanley Tucci's BLIND DATE

Stanley Tucci's BLIND DATE

After Dutch director Theo Van Gogh (yes, he’s related to Vincent) was murdered in 2004 as a result of making SUBMISSION (many Muslims thought it was overly critical of Islam), American actors have been practically queuing up to direct English-language versions of his films. Steve Buscemi was first with INTERVIEW (2007), and up next to pay homage is Stanley Tucci, whose remake of Van Gogh’s 1996 BLIND DATE premiered at Sundance last year.
