Hype Williams To Helm Eszterhas’ “Lust”

“Belly” director Hype Williams is set to helm the independently financed $30 million sexual thriller “Lust” reports Variety.

“Basic Instinct” scribe Joe Eszterhas penned the screenplay which revolves around a 30-year old beauty who is married to an older Miami-based fashion magazine publisher. She is soon seduced by a younger charming playboy on a business trip in Los Angeles.

Throw in the backdrop of the high stakes Miami real estate scene, steamy sex scenes, high suspense, and a gay Russian personal assistant infatuated with the playboy who plans to extort the duo having the affair.

Jack Olsen recently rewrote some scenes. Scott Steindorff will produce.
