Will Smith Is A Voyeur

Columbia Pictures has picked up the thriller “Le Voyeur” for Will Smith and James Lassiter to produce says Reuters.

Penned by Massy Tadjedin, it centers on a man who returns to the Caribbean island of his youth and becomes a suspect in the murder of a teenage girl that was committed two days after his arrival.

The story is based on a 1955 French novel by Alain Robbe-Grillet. Nearly five years ago the project was set up at Universal Pictures with Kevin Misher and Akiva Goldsman producing.

The less than $10 million budgeted film is currently shooting in New York.
