Tim Roth will star alongside Naomi Watts in the Michael Haneke-directed drama “Funny Games,” after completing “My Blueberry Nights,” in which he also stars.

The Wong Kar Wai-directed “Nights” is already shooting in New York, with Jude Law, Natalie Portman, Rachel Weisz and songstress Norah Jones rounding out the cast.

In “Funny Games,” which starts in September, Roth will play a father and husband who tries to protect his family after two psychos invade their cabin during a vacation.

Hamish McAlpine’s Tartan Films and Chris Coen’s Halcyon Pictures joined forces with French sales outfit Celluloid Dreams to produce the film, a remake of Haneke’s 1997 German original.

Roth just completed the Francis Ford Coppola-directed “Youth Without Youth” and the HBO film “The Aftermath” with Chiwetel Ejiofor and Toni Collette.
