A few months ago it was revealed that Rob Reiner was heading back into thriller territory for the first time since 1990’s Misery, helming You Belong To Me. Now it seems the cast is coming together, as The Wrap reports Zac Efron and Harrison Ford are set to star in the movie, which is said to be in the same vein as Cape Fear. Neither actor has signed on the dotted line yet, but both are in talks.
The story is about a psychiatrist (Ford), who is tormented by regret after a female patient kills herself. In the wake of her suicide, he befriends her brother James (Efron), telling him more about himself than he should. Things take a dark turn when James wheedles his way into the shrink’s home and begins toying with his wife and daughter. It’ll certainly show us a different side of Efron. Reiner previously commented, “This one has a deep psychological bent to it and a big twist in the end that I didn’t see coming. That’s why I decided to take a whack at this one.”
The wife and daughter are yet to be cast, but expect news on the soon, as You Belong To Me is one the fast track, with plans to shoot next March.
