Nalluri Helms Tourist Thriller

Bharat Nalluri (“Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day”) is set to direct “The Tourist”, a remake of the 2005 French thriller “Anthony Zimmer”, for Spyglass Entertainment says Variety.

“Gosford Park” scribe Julian Fellowes is adapting the story of an American tourist who finds his life in danger when a female Interpol agent uses him as a dupe to flush out an elusive criminal with whom she once had an affair.

Lasse Hallstrom was originally attached to direct but left the project sometime ago. Production is scheduled for late summer or early fall.
