Chris Rock has signed on to direct his own comedy, I Think I Love My Wife for Fox Searchlight. Chris has also written the script and will star in the film as well.
Charles Stone III was originally set to direct the film, but dropped out; that's when Chris jumped into the spot. Kerry Washington and Gina Torres are also starring in the remake of Eric Rohmer's 1972 French comedy, Chloe in the Afternoon. The Hollywood Reporter says the movie centers on Richard Cooper (Rock), who is married to Brenda (Torres), with whom he has a young daughter. When his old flame (Washington) enters the picture, Cooper soon discovers he is in way over his head.
I Think I Love My Wife begins shooting later this month in New York; a 2007 release is scheduled.
