Principals Celine Rattray and Trudie Styler announced on Thursday (26) that Kimberly Peirce will direct the remake of the French psychological thriller.
Michelle Krumm joins the producer roster. Wentworth Miller is adapting the screenplay, which is in the vein of Strangers On A Train and centres on a mysterious man who joins a family on vacation.
“We’re excited to work with the incredibly talented Kimberly Peirce and Wentworth Miller on this film,” Rattray (pictured) and Styler said. “A smart thriller like this one really highlights range and versatility of Maven’s slate.”
Peirce is currently directing the Carrie remake starring Chloë Moretz and Julianne Moore for Screen Gems and MGM.
Miller recently collaborated with Chan-wook Park on Fox Searchlight’s upcoming horror film Stoker starring Nicole Kidman and Mia Wasikowska.
Maven’s first feature Imogene will premiere at Toronto. Filth is in post-production and stars James McAvoy, Jim Broadbent, Jamie Bell and Imogen Poots.
