Julianne Moore, Liam Neeson and Amanda Seyfried are set to star in “Chloe,” an Atom Egoyan-directed thriller to be fully financed by StudioCanal.
Moore will play a successful doctor who suspects her husband (Neeson) of cheating. She tests his fidelity by hiring an escort (Seyfried) to seduce him. The move creates complications that put her family in danger. Erin Cressida Wilson wrote the script.
Shooting begins Feb. 9 in Toronto.
Ivan Reitman and Tom Pollock will produce through their Montecito Picture Co. banner. They have worked for four years on the project, which began when they optioned from Canal Plus the rights to remake “Nathalie,” a 2003 French film that starred Gerard Depardieu and Emmanuelle Beart.
Joe Medjuck and Jeffrey Clifford are also producing, and Jason Reitman and Dan Dubiecki are exec producers.
StudioCanal will distribute in France, Germany and the U.K. and will handle worldwide sales.
