A very talented cast is coming together for The Blunderer, with Deadline reporting that Patrick Wilson, Jessica Biel, Imogen Poots, and Toby Jones have signed on to star (and yes, I do include Biel in the talented group, as she’s actually far better than most of the roles she’s given).
Based Patricia Highsmith’s 1960s set novel the story follows Walter Stackhouse (Wilson), who is a successful architect with a lovely wife (Biel).
Underneath his seemingly normal, perfect life, he is obsessed with an unsolved murder case, which spirals out of control as he faces both a deadly killer (Jones) and an ambitious detective, all while lusting for another woman (Poots).
Andy Goddard is set to directing from screenplay by Susan Boyd. The film will be looking for buyers at Cannes.
