Over ten years since his last film "Unfaithful," filmmaker Adrian Lyne ("Flashdance," "Fatal Attraction") has closed a deal to direct a film adaptation of the classic Patricia Highsmith 1957 novel "Deep Water" at Film Rites and Film 360.
The story follows Vic and Melinda, an attractive young married couple whose mind games with each other take a twisted turn when people around them start turning up dead. A major star is already said to be in talks for the project which Zach Helm is scripting.
Highsmith penned the likes of "Strangers On A Train" and "The Talented Mr. Ripley" and is suddenly in vogue again with new films based on her works "The Blunderer" and "The Price of Salt" in development, and the already completed "Two Faces of January" opening later this year.
Ben Forkner, Guymon Casady, Garrett Basch and Steve Zaillian are producing.
