Rob Reiner is reportedly set to direct You Belong to Me, a psychological thriller in the vein of Cape Fear. Written by David Murray, You Belong to Me follows a psychiatrist who breaks a golden rule of doctor-patient interactions: he talks about his personal life openly. It’s been a while since Reiner ventured into thriller territory, with his last foray being the 1990 adaptation of Stephen King’s Misery. Heat Vision reports that Reiner commented on that fact by 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.”
Casting will begin immediately for the four leads: the psychiatrist, his wife and daughter, and the patient. Production is scheduled to start in New York this fall.
