French Thriller Bait Gets Remade

Eric Eisner, Aimee Peyronnet and Alexandra Milchan will produce an English-language version of the 1995 French thriller “The Bait” says The Hollywood Reporter.

Bertrand Tavernier’s movie revolved around a woman, her boyfriend and his friend who come up with a plan to rob the houses of wealthy married men by using the woman as “bait” — that is, having her seduce the men — but whose plan quickly leads to missteps and murder.

Matthew Cirulnick (“Vandals”) will pen the update with the setting and time changed from 1980’s Paris to contemporary New York.
