Michael Caine will be heading to Paris later this year to star in Mr. Morgan's Last Love, an adaptation of the novel La douceur assassine by Francoise Dorner.

The story centers on a widowed and retired American philosophy professor who meets a much younger woman in Paris. They form a special relationship and rekindle the lost joy in both their lives.

Mostly Martha director Sandra Nettelbeck has adapted the novel and will direct the movie. Sandra Nettelbeck changed the French Monsieur Armand character to the American Mr. Morgan for the adaptation.

Production will start in August, with shooting scheduled to take place in Paris and Cologne. Before taking on this project, though, Michael Caine will reprise his role as Alfred in The Dark Knight Rises, which starts shooting this spring.
