The plot of director Olivier Assayas’ next pic is being kept under wraps, but it’s described as a sophisticated heist action-thriller. Robert De Niro has joined the cast of Idol’s Eye alongside Robert Pattinson. Benaroya Pictures has come aboard to finance the project, which is expected to start production in October in Chicago and Toronto. Charles Gillibert developed and produced Idol’s Eye with CG Cinema, Bluegrass Films’ Scott Stuber, Film 360’s Scott Lambert, Alexandra Milchan and Michael Benaroya. Ben Sachs is executive producing.
