The original play “God Of Carnage” won Best Play, Best Direction, and Best Actress (Marcia Gay Harden) at the 2009 Tony Awards. The story is set in Brooklyn and deals with two different sets of parents that meet to discuss one of their children’s bullying of the other couple’s child. Things start out in a civil manner, but by nightfall things spin into chaos. Shooting starts in Paris in February for 12 weeks. Shooting in Brooklyn is prohibited because of Polanski’s legal situation due to allegations against him for unlawful sexual conduct with a minor in 1977.
