Alfred Molina has singed on to star in David Ondaatje's The Lodger. According to Variety, Hope Davis will be joining him in this remake of Alfred Hitchcock's 1927 directorial debut.

The screenplay is based on Marie Belloc Lowndes' book of the same name. It has been updated to present day Los Angeles, and will have two converging storylines. The first involves the back and forth between a troubled detective and an unknown killer. The other explores the relationship between an emotionally disturbed landlady and her tenant.

Shooting is set to start next week in Los Angeles.
