Ejiofor, Paltrow Join “Secret In Their Eyes”

“12 Years a Slave” star Chiwetel Ejiofor and Gwyneth Paltrow are set to team for filmmaker Billy Ray’s remake of Argentinian foreign-language Oscar winner “The Secret In Their Eyes”.

Ray, who wrote and directed “Shattered Glass” and “Breach,” is reconfiguring the original which will now focus on a former MI-5 agent haunted by an unsolved case who discovers a shocking truth about past events.

Mark Johnson and John Ufland will produce and filming is slated to begin this Fall in Boston. Juan Jose Campanella, who directed the original, will executive produce.

IM Global is selling the project at Cannes.
