Gavin O’Connor to Direct ‘Tell No One’ Remake for Universal, Warner Bros.

Film originally had Ben Affleck attached to direct

Gavin O’Connor is in negotiations to direct the remake of the French pic “Tell No One.”

The co-production between Universal and Warner Bros. was originally eyeballed as a Ben Affleck gig, but scheduling forced Affleck to move on, and the film was stuck in limbo until O’Connor climbed on board.

The original pic, which was based on a novel by Harlan Coben, revolves around a doctor originally suspected of murdering his wife eight years prior and is again suspected of murder after two bodies are found near the spot where his wife’s body was found. Things become even more interesting when he receives an email that includes a photo of his wife who appears to be alive and older.

“Argo” screenwriter Chris Terrio penned the script, and Frank Marshall is producing.

The CAA-repped O’Connor recently wrapped production on the Western “Jane Got a Gun,” starring Natalie Portman.
