Ewan McGre­gor’s screen magic

New Straits Times - - Groove -

An adap­ta­tion of the

Robert Har­ris novel, The

Ghost, this po­lit­i­cal thriller, di­rected by Ro­man Polan­ski, sees McGre­gor as a ghost­writer, whose life is in jeop­ardy af­ter un­cov­er­ing se­crets from his work in pre­par­ing a mem­oir of a for­mer Bri­tish prime min­is­ter. McGre­gor’s char­ac­ter is sim­ply listed as The Ghost in the film’s cred­its and the orig­i­nal novel doesn’t name him ei­ther. Be­cause of this, the ac­tor had ap­par­ently said that in his head the char­ac­ter’s name was Gor­don McFar­quor.
