Michelle Williams is in talks to star in the romantic thriller “The Double Hour” at Vertigo Entertainment and Fox Searchlight.
An English-language remake of the 2009 Italian hit “La Doppia Ora,” the story centers on an ex-cop and a hotel maid who fall in love after meeting at a speed-dating event.
After they retreat to the ex-cop’s employer’s house for a romantic evening, they are ambushed by a gang that the maid later appears to be involved with.
Joshua Marston (“Maria Full of Grace”) helms from his own script. Nicola Giuliano and Roy Lee are producing.
