Patrick Wilson, Jessica Biel, Imogen Poots, and Toby Jones have all signed on to star in Andy Goddard’s “The Blunderer”.
The film is an adaptation of “The Talented Mr. Ripley” and “Strangers on a Train” author Patricia Highsmith’s novel of the same name.
Wilson plays Walter Stackhouse, a successful architect with a lovely wife in the 1960s. Walter becomes obsessed with an unsolved murder case, which spirals out of control as he faces both a deadly killer (Toby Jones) and an ambitious detective, all while lusting for another woman (Imogen Poots).
Susan Boyd adapted the screenplay while Christine Vachon, David Hinojosa and Ted Hope are producing. Filming begins later this year.
