Los Angeles [USA], May 6 (ANI): Chris Pine and Oscar nominated actress Michelle Williams are in negotiations to star in 'All the Old Knives'. According to Hollywood Reporter, the 'Theory of Everything' helmer James Marsh is also in negotiations to direct the spy thriller. The Mark Gordon Company and eOne will finance the project. Olen Steinhauer, the author of 'The Tourist' and 'An American Spy,' adapted the screenplay from his novel of the same name. The story focuses on a pair of ex-lovers - one a CIA spy, one a former agency spy - who meet up in the town of Carmel-by-the-Sea. While reminiscing, they relive a disastrous old mission, that of a hijacking of a Jordanian airline. But a steely undercurrent runs through the dinner, with a question being whether the spy (Pine) wants to rekindle the romance or find out what really happened. Nick Wechsler is producing with Chockstone Pictures partners Steve Schwartz and Paula Mae Schwartz. Chockstone's Roger Schwartz is a co-producer. MGC's Mark Gordon and Matt Jackson will executive produce, with Sara Smith overseeing the project on behalf of MGC. (ANI)
