Chris Rock will star in "I Think I Love My Wife" a remake of Eric Rohmer's 1972 French film "Chloe in the Afternoon" for Fox Searchlight Pictures says Reuters.

"Chloe" depicted the life of a happily married office worker who daydreams about other women until he encounters the mistress of an old friend who tries to seduce him. "Wife" is set in present-day New York rather than Rohmer's Paris in the swinging '70s.

Charles Stone ("Drumline") is in final negotiations to direct. Rock wrote the script with longtime collaborator Louis C.K.
