Tony Kaye eyes ‘Attachment’

Director in talks for thriller at W2 Media

Tony Kaye is in talks to direct the indie thriller “Attachment” for W2 Media, which is fully financing.

Story, penned by Christopher Denham, centers on a married woman’s one night stand with a student coming back to haunt her when the lover begins to date her daughter and stalk her family. W2 is anticipating a spring start.

Kaye (“American History X”) most recently directed Adrien Brody starrer “Detachment,” which world preemed at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year. Brody portrays a substitute teacher whose growing attachments to students, teachers and a runaway teen cause him to question the solitary life he’s chosen. Tribeca Films acquired U.S. rights in September.

Kaye also directed “Black Water Transit,” a crime drama set in post-Katrina New Orleans starring Laurence Fishburne. “Transit,” which was among the assets of David Bergstein, hasn’t been distributed.

W2 Media came on last month co-finance and distribute “The Theatre Bizarre 2,” a sequel to Severin Films and Mataluna Prods.’ “The Theater Bizarre” horror anthology. It also announced a deal to co-finance and handle international sales for “The Drummer,” starring Aaron Eckhart in a biopic about Beach Boys drummer-songwriter Dennis Wilson.

W2’s John Flock and Adam Krentzman are negotiating with Kaye’s reps at ICM.
