The name Ross Katz might not sound familiar, but you've likely seen some of the films that have his name in the credits. As a producer, he put his weight behind a number of acclaimed films including "In the Bedroom," "Lost In Translation" and "Marie Antoinette." In 2009 he unveiled his debut feature, the acclaimed HBO drama "Taking Chance" with Kevin Bacon, and now the director is gearing up his sophomore effort.

The name Ross Katz might not sound familiar, but you've likely seen some of the films that have his name in the credits. As a producer, he put his weight behind a number of acclaimed films including "In the Bedroom," "Lost In Translation" and "Marie Antoinette." In 2009 he unveiled his debut feature, the acclaimed HBO drama "Taking Chance" with Kevin Bacon, and now the director is gearing up his sophomore effort.

Deadline reports the up-and-comer Luke Evans ("Tamara Drewe," "Clash of the Titans") is set to star in "The Amateur American." Written by Katz, the film follows "a young American living in Paris who accepts a job working for a shadowy employer and soon finds himself framed for murder and caught up in a web of deceit." It sounds like a half-dozen movies we've seen already so we hope there's another element to the story to give it a fresh twist.

The film is gearing up to shoot in September with FilmNation financing the picture. No domestic deal is in place yet, but still plenty of time for that happen.
