Mike Figgis will direct the Neil LaBute screenplay “Seconds of Pleasure,” with a cast that includes Matt Dillon, Julia Stiles, Brendan Fraser, Kristin Scott Thomas and Christina Hendricks.
LaBute adapted the script from own 2005 short fiction collection of the same name. Here, the stories have been knit together to center on one location — a flight from Chicago to London — and “explores a series of intimate and emotionally charged events that occur among a small group of people traveling together.”
Myriad Pictures, which made the announcement, holds worldwide rights to the project. Scotland’s STV Prods. developed and will produce “Seconds of Pleasure.”
In addition to LaBute, the film’s producers are Margaret Enefer and STV’s head of drama, Bill Shapter.
