According to Variety, in a move likely to jumpstart the long-in-development project, Molly's World, Michael Bay has come onboard as a producer for the New Line psychological thriller through his Platinum Dunes shingle.

New Line co-chairman Bob Shaye had been considering directing Molly's World but has since backed out. Producers are currently looking for a helmer.

The story concerns a psychiatrist who gets drawn into the world of a patient who killed her family in an effort to protect them from a supernatural element.

Bay is currently shooting The Island for DreamWorks and WB.
