The creepiest picture of Rob Reiner of all time brought to you by the news that he’ll be taking a break from romantic comedies and non-romantic comedies to make You Belong to Me ‐ the ominously-titled thriller from writer David Murray. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the movie focuses on a psychiatrist who shares his own life with his patients. According to Reiner, the story involves “a deep psychological bent to it and a big twist in the end that [he] didn’t see coming.”
It’s easy to forget that Reiner was the director who made Misery in 1990. Under the fluffy pile of When Harry Met Sally and Princess Bride, he knocked out one of the best Stephen King adaptations on the books. The point? He’s got cold blood somewhere in him, and it’s more than a little exciting to see him return to the genre. Maybe he can convince Kathy Bates to cameo.
