A Reliable Wife Luca Guadagnino
It's been five years since Luca Guadagnino delivered the heady and swooning "I Am Love," and while he's been working steadily since on various fashion campaigns, shorts and documentaries, there hasn't been much movement on a feature film. Now it looks like he's ready to return, with another tale of domestic trouble.

With two major blockbuster flops in two years (“John Carter,” “The Lone Ranger”), the conventional wisdom follows that Disney is probably not green-lighting any major, untested would-be franchises anytime soon (even the the trio behind “The Pirates of The Caribbean” films, Bruckheimer, Depp and Verbinski proved nothing’s a sure thing).

The duo haven't worked on a project together since, but not for a lack of trying. A couple of years ago they tried to get an adaptation of Max Erlich's "The Reincarnation Of Peter Proud" off the ground. Like a handful of other Fincher projects over the years, it fell to the wayside. Now, the helmer has enlisted his old friend for what may be his biggest movie yet.
