According to The Hollywood Reporter, Neil Burger will direct from a Leslie Dixon script with Universal distributing the film domestically.
Dixon and Scott Kroopf are producing along with Relativity's Ryan Kavanaugh.

Robert De Niro and Abbie Cornish have already been cast. Friel will play Cooper's ex-wife.
Friel can be seen in the upcoming Woody Allen film "You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger" as well as Oscar-winning writer William Monahan’s directorial debut, "London Boulevard."
