According to The Hollywood Reporter, Christopher Eccleston, currently riding high in the U.K. television ratings as the latest incarnation of Doctor Who, has signed to star in Double Life, from British production company Cougar Films

Joe Ahearne will direct the project, set to begin shooting later this year in Hungary, from his own script. Cougar Films, founded by Sophie Balhetchet and Lynda La Plante, will co-produce the £3.5 million ($6.5 million) budgeted project with Hungarian Film Connection and London-based Ildiko Kemeny

While keeping tight-lipped about the plot, Balhetchet described it as a high concept sci-fi genre piece.
