Chiwetel Ejiofor and Gwyneth Paltrow to star in The Secret in their Eyes
Chiwetel Ejiofor and Gwyneth Paltrow will co-star in The Secret in their Eyes, a crime thriller that Billy Ray wrote and will direct.
IM Global is on board to produce and finance.
Based on the oscar-winning film El Secreto de Sus Ojos, the story follows a former MI-5 agent (Ejiofor) who is obsessed with an unsolved murder. He goes to work for the FBI in Boston, but as he inches closer to solving the crime, he uncovers a shocking truth that will shed a terrifying new light on past events.
Writer Billy Ray ("State of Play") will direct "The Secret In Their Eyes", the English language remake of "El Secreto De Sus Ojos" which won the Oscar for best foreign film last year.
Ray also wrote the screenplay.
The story centers on a retired prosecutor who writes a novel that hopes will allow him to deal with an unrequited love for a superior but mostly to gain closure on a particularly brutal unsolved crime that has haunted him through his career.
