Le Voyeur Goes to Sony

ON

Columbia Pictures has picked up the thriller Le Voyeur for Will Smith and James Lassiter to produce through their Sony-based Overbrook Entertainment, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Written by Massy Tadjedin, the long-gestating project originally was set up in 2002 at Universal Pictures with Kevin Misher and Akiva Goldsman producing. The film centers on a man who returns to the Caribbean island of his youth and becomes a suspect in the murder of a teenage girl that was committed two days after his arrival.

The story is based on a 1955 French novel by Alain Robbe-Grillet.
