However, now comes word that Danish director Henrik Genz (Terribly Happy) will direct the film based on an adaptation of the book by Kelly Masterson (Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead) with James Franco as the front-runner to star.
The project was mistaken in an earlier report on Wednesday by The Wrap for an adaptation of the Broadway play ‘Good People’, by David Lindsay-Abaire.
Based on Marcus Sakey’s third book, this Good People follows a Chicago couple that comes across $400,000 and do whatever they can to try and keep it.
Tobey Maguire will serve as producer along with Ben Forkner, Matthew Plouffe, Thomas Gammeltoft, Mark Gill, and Ed Cathell. No word if Maguire’s set to co-star.
