Drew Barrymore has committed to star in the Warner Bros. thriller He Loves Me, according to Variety. Ted Tally has been set to write a new draft. Barrymore and her Flower Films partner Nancy Juvonen are producing.
Warner Bros. bought the Joyce Brotman spec in December, with Barrymore eyeing the lead at that time. The buy came as Flower planted itself at Warner Bros. in a new first-look deal.
Tally, the Silence of the Lambs screenwriter who most recently completed an adaptation of The Reckoning for Paramount and Shrek the Third for DreamWorks, called He Loves Me a "taut, sexy thriller about contemporary infidelity, which strongly questions the proposition that what you don't know won't hurt you."
