Filmmaker Errol Morris, best known for his law-changing documentary "The Thin Blue Line" and Oscar-winning "The Fog of War," has attached himself to narrative feature "Holland, Michigan." Per Deadline, the film is "a suburban thriller laced with black humor."

It is penned by first-timer Andrew Sodroski, a Harvard grad. Le Grisbi's John Lesher and Adam Kessan will produce.

Meanwhile, Morris has another feature somewhere in the pipeline: "Freezing People Is Easy." During press rounds for his last documentary "Tabloid," Morris described it to Empire as "a dramatic feature about the first man to be cryogenically frozen"; that project has Christopher Walken, Paul Rudd, Kristen Wiig and Owen Wilson on board.

"Holland, Michigan" is reportedly set to begin production in early 2014. Morris has had a 22-year hiatus from narrative filmmaking; his Lou Diamond Phillips police procedural "The Dark Wind" was made in 1991.
