Tony Kaye To Direct Thriller 'Attachment'

We've said it before, but the post-"American History X" career of director Tony Kaye has been bumpy at best. Not counting the turmoil he went through on the Edward Norton movie, his next films were either ignored ("Lake Of Fire"), stuck in legal limbo ("Black Water Transit") or crucified by critics (his recent high school drama "Detachment"). So who knows what might befall his effort.

Tony Kaye

We've said it before, but the post-"American History X" career of director Tony Kaye has been bumpy at best. Not counting the turmoil he went through on the Edward Norton movie, his next films were either ignored ("Lake Of Fire"), stuck in legal limbo ("Black Water Transit") or crucified by critics (his recent high school drama "Detachment"). So who knows what might befall his effort.

Kaye is now set to take on "Attachment," a thriller penned by actor Christopher Denham (who wrote and directed the POV horror flick "Home Movie"). We have to say, the premise sounds pretty rote if not somewhat teen soapy. The story will center on a married woman who has a one night stand with a student, but things get out of hand when he returns, dates her daughter and begins stalking her. We've seen variations on this kind of thing plenty of times before but Kaye is certainly never predictable and we'd guess there's more going on here than meets the eye. At least we hope.

No word yet on who will star, but Kaye still carries some cachet as he was able to round up folks like Adrien Brody, Christina Hendricks, James Caan, Marcia Gay Harden, Blythe Danner, Tim Blake Nelson and Bryan Cranston for "Detachment." It will be interesting to see who he gathers up for this effort that is aiming to go in front of cameras next spring. [Variety]
