HOLLYWOOD, June 23 (UPI) -- Director Rob Reiner said he has agreed to helm the upcoming psychological thriller "You Belong to Me" in his first return to the genre since 1990's "Misery."

Reiner, who is mostly known for dramas and romantic comedies including "Stand by Me," "The Princess Bride" and "When Harry Met Sally," said he hasn't made a psychological thriller since "Misery" because it's hard to find a story he hasn't seen before, The Hollywood Reporter reported Friday.

"They are hard to make well, but this one has a deep psychological bent to it and a big twist in the end that I didn't see coming," he said. "That's why I decided to take a whack at this one."

The story, penned by David Murray, is likened to "Cape Fear" and centers on a psychiatrist who makes the mistake of talking about himself to a patient.

Production is scheduled to begin in the fall in New York, and casting for the four lead parts will begin immediately, THR said.
