Ethan Hawke and Kristin Scott Thomas set for The Woman in the Fifth
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Ethan Hawke and Kristin Scott Thomas have signed on to star in the upcoming indie thriller THE WOMAN IN THE FIFTH. Polish director Pawel Pawlikowski will direct the film from Douglas Kennedy’s story. Filming is set to begin in March. The story is about an American film teacher that flees to Paris after a scandal and moves in with a widow, who is possibly connected to a series of murders.
I’m a big fan of Kristin Scott Thomas, although she hasn’t been hitting homeruns lately. The story sounds a little Lifetime-movie-ish to me, so I can only assume there’s some sort of big twist at the end. I also wish they would’ve set this somewhere other than Paris. I’m getting sick of the whole “American in Paris” idea.
