Intimate Strangers is the story of a woman who goes into an office that she believes is that of her new shrink and bares her soul to an accountant.
Bob Nelson, who wrote Alexander Payne's upcoming pic, Nebraska, will adapt. Paramount Classics released Leconte's film last year, which gave the studio first right of refusal on the remake rights.
The pic is the tale of an obsessively organized man whose life devolves into chaos. Castle Rock Entertainment produces the pic with Golchan.
