Bharat Nalluri will direct The Tourist, a Spyglass Entertainment remake of the 2005 French thriller Anthony Zimmer.

According to Variety, Gosford Park's Julian Fellowes wrote the script for the thriller, which concerns an American tourist who finds his life in danger when a female Interpol agent uses him as a dupe to flush out an elusive criminal with whom she once had an affair.

Nalluri replaces Lasse Hallstrom, who was originally attached but departed the project some time ago.

Production is scheduled for late summer or early fall.
