The director of last year's thriller Law Abiding Citizen is about to stay in the thriller genre for a new project. Variety is reporting that director F. Gary Gray has signed on to direct the new film Hair of the Dog.

The film will revolve around a successful businessman who is threatened by a blackmail scheme and later discovers that scheme is only a small part of a larger and much darker plan. Casting news has not been announced at this time.

Gray will be directing from a script by Kirsten Elms, with Paul Brooks producing for Gold Circle Films. No production schedule was released for the film as of yet.
