Christoph Waltz in 'True Crimes'
Los Angeles: Double Oscar-winner Christoph Waltz is all set to star in 'True Crimes', a thriller based on the real-life events surrounding a cold case.
The 'Django Unchained' star has come on board to star in the thriller, which is based on David Grann's New Yorker feature about the real-life case of Krystian Bala, a Polish writer who was convicted of murder in 2007, the Hollywood Reporter said.
The murder for which he was convicted had been a cold case, baffling the Polish police for years, and had been called a perfect crime.
The case was reopened and the investigator managed to establish a link between the murder and the writer when he published a novel that detailed a murder very much similar to the true murder.
Waltz, who became famous in Hollywood with his role of a brutal Nazi in 'Inglorious Bastards', is playing a positive role in the crime story.
He will star as Jacek Wroblewski, the police officer who reopens the cold case.
