First announced in 2012 with Rob Reiner attached to direct, “Every Breath You Take” has taken a few detours over the last 9-ish years. Now it’s set for an early April release with Vaughn Stein directing from a screenplay by David Murray. The psychological thriller sports an interesting cast including Casey Affleck, Michelle Monaghan, Sam Claflin, and India Eisley. The first trailer dropped recently and while some elements look pretty familiar, there could be more going on than we may think.
Affleck plays a psychiatrist who loses a young female patient to suicide. Soon he and his family are caught in a terrifying game of cat-and-mouse with the girl’s brother (Claflin). It’s a safe bet that things aren’t quite as they appear and I’m sure we can expect several twists and turns along the way. I like the tense and foreboding tone and if Stein can avoid many of the usual genre pot holes and trappings this could be an entertaining little thriller.
“Every Breath You Take” is set to release April 2nd. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
