More than twelve years after directing Richard Gere and Diane Lane in the thriller hit Unfaithful, filmmaker Adrian Lyne seems to be gearing up for a new project and is close to a deal to direct the Zach (Stranger Than Fiction) Helm-scripted adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's thriller novel Deep Water, according to Deadline.

The novel follows an attractive young married couple named Vic and Melinda, whose mind games with each other take a twisted turn when people around them starting turning up dead. The late author who wrote the book also wrote the tense thrillers The Talented Mr. Ripley and Strangers on a Train. According to the story, they already have one big star in talks for one of the roles.

Lyne created a niche for himself in the '90s by directing steamy sexual thrillers including Fatal Attraction, 9 1/2 Weeks and Flashdance, but he's been less prolific in recent years. The last project Lyne was attached to direct was an adaptation of Tawni O'Dell's Back Roads, Oprah Winfrey's Book Club Selection, but nothing happened with that.

Lyne will reteam with Fox 2000s Elizabeth Gabler, who produced Unfaithful, as a co-production between Film Rites and Film 360, who have been developing the project for a long time.
