Wilson, Marsden eye ‘Loft’ space

Anonymous Content remaking Belgian thriller

Patrick Wilson and James Marsden are in talks to star in the indie thriller “Loft,” Anonymous Content’s remake of the 2008 Belgian picture.

Original helmer Erik Van Looy will return to direct from a screenplay by Wesley Strick (“A Nightmare on Elm Street”), who adapts Bart De Pauw’s original script.

Film follows five married friends who decide to rent a loft together where they can bring their mistresses. When the body of an unknown woman is found in the loft, they realize that they don’t know each other as well as they thought and begin to suspect one another of murder.

Anonymous Content’s Steve Golin, Paul Green, Matt DeRoss and Adam Shulman will produce along with original “Loft” producer Hilde DeLaere of Belgian banner Woestijnvis.

Project is expected to begin production in the spring.

Wilson has signed on to star in CBS’ untitled supernatural medical drama from Susannah Grant. He recently wrapped Jason Reitman’s dark comedy “Young Adult” and he’ll soon be seen in “Insidious” and “The Ledge,” which IFC picked up at Sundance.

Marsden will show off his versatility in his upcoming films, as he next stars in Universal’s family comedy “Hop” and Rod Lurie’s remake of “Straw Dogs.” Thesp also has David O. Russell’s long-delayed comedy “Nailed” awaiting release.

Wilson is repped by CAA, while WME and Brillstein Entertainment Partners rep Marsden. Strick is repped by WME and Anonymous Content.
