14 May 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Chris Rock has signed on to direct the comedy I Think I Love My Wife for Fox Searchlight. Charles Stone was slated to direct the Rock starrer, but he recently dropped out. Kerry Washington and Gina Torres have boarded the project, which begins shooting this month in New York. The film, a remake of Eric Rohmer's 1972 French comedy Chloe in the Afternoon, centers on Richard Cooper (Rock), a professional 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. Rock penned the screenplay with longtime collaborator Louis C.K. »

Rock commits to 'Wife,' Stone for Searchlight

22 February 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Chris Rock is set to star in I Think I Love My Wife, a remake of the French film Chloe in the Afternoon, for Fox Searchlight Pictures. Charles Stone, who directed 2002's Drumline, is in final negotiations to direct. Rock wrote the script with longtime collaborator Louis C.K., adapting Eric Rohmer's 1972 film, whose French title is L'amour l'apres-midi. Chloe depicted the life of a happily married office worker who daydreams about other women until he encounters the mistress of an old friend who tries to seduce him. Wife is set in present-day New York rather than Rohmer's Paris in the swinging '70s. "I'm a big fan of Charles Stone, who I've been trying to work with ever since I saw 'Drumline, ' " Rock said. "In the past year, I have made it a point to reach out to a lot of filmmakers whose work I enjoyed, and one person's name that kept coming up as someone I needed to work with was (Fox Searchlight Pictures president) Peter Rice. I can't wait to make a sophisticated comedy with all the good people at Fox Searchlight." »
