Nalluri to Direct Thriller The Tourist


Bharat Nalluri (Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day) is set to direct The Tourist, a Spyglass Entertainment remake of the 2005 French thriller Anthony Zimmer.

Variety says production is scheduled for late summer or early fall.

Written by Gosford Park screenwriter Julian Fellowes, the thriller concerns an American tourist who finds his life in danger when a female Interpol agent uses him as a dupe to flush out an elusive criminal with whom she once had an affair.

Nalluri replaces Lasse Hallstrom, who was originally attached but departed the project some time ago.
