Rob Reiner Set to Direct the Thriller YOU BELONG TO ME!

Movieby Billy Fisher

Director Rob Reiner (Flipped, Spinal Tap, Stand By Me, Princess Bride) is going to be stepping out of his comfort zone with his latest film project. He has signed on to direct the thriller called You Belong To Me. According to THR, the movie was written by David Murray and described as being in the tradition of Cape Fear, "the project centers on a psychiatrist who does the one thing you are never supposed to do with your patients: talk about yourself."

As many of you know, RR has stepped into the Thriller arena once before with the 1990 film Misery. If you haven’t seen it yet, I would advise you to do so, you will not be disappointed. He also told trade why he hasn’t done a thriller in a while saying,

They are hard to make well, but 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.

I think that this is an interesting take on the situation. Now, my question to you is, do you think Reiner still has the chops to take on a thriller like this? Until next time…

McMurphy Out!
